As a melting pot of different cultures, the Middle East can be a challenging environment in terms of employment ethics and regulations.
International companies drawn to the region by the enticing investment opportunities can soon discover that what works perfectly well from an HR perspective in other territories, does not comply with expectations and laws in the Middle East.
On the flip side, national companies who grow large enough to employ workers from overseas can struggle to adapt to the cultural expectations placed on them.
Having worked on an enormous range of cases, for both national and international companies across the Middle East, we can help you navigate every aspect of employment, labour and HR as well as providing related services such as due diligence, corporate support and litigation.
Our full range of employment and HR services includes:
- Business reorganization
- Employee acquisitions and disposals
