Sara joined the Dubai office in January 2008 establishing the employment team, prior to which she practised employment law in London for six years. She has a focus on multijurisdictional projects and advising employers within the insurance, infrastructure, TMT, hospitality, retail, healthcare, shipping, and aviation sectors. She works with the firm’s Japan desk to advise Japanese clients in the region and has an extensive KSA employment practice as well as a UAE and wider MENA practice. She is increasingly working with her clients to manage their operations in Africa.
Much of her work involves providing strategic advice to employers in the region enabling them to adopt best practice, deal with global mobility issues (both inbound and outbound), draft and adapt HR policies both global and local to enhance integration and manage employee relations.
Sara also provides extensive training for managers and HR personnel directly for clients and also through a number of training organisations such as JSB, Informa, and Claridon.
