Law firm Stephenson Harwood has been recognised by the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Academy of Law as 'Specialists in DIFC Data Protection Law'.

The award recognises the contribution made by the firm's employment and data protection teams to the Academy of Law/LexisNexis publication Laws of the DIFC – Volume 2. The presentation was made by Chief Justice of the DIFC Courts, Michael Hwang, and Director of the Academy of Law, David Gallo, at a ceremony in the DIFC to mark the launch of Laws of the DIFC – Volume 2 and recognise the contributors 

"We are very proud to have received a second honorary title from the DIFC Academy of Law," said Kiersten Lucas, employment partner, Stephenson Harwood. "Having previously been recognised as 'Specialists in DIFC Employment Law' for our contribution to the Laws of the DIFC – Volume 1, this second accolade further demonstrates the firm's reputation as a market leader in these fields, and the strength of the collaborative relationship we have with the governing bodies of the DIFC."

2018 will see a number of further joint projects between Stephenson Harwood and the DIFC, including training for the local legal community on the DIFC Data Protection and Employment Laws, delivering the Academy of Law's Certificate in Human Resources (HR) Law & Practice seminar series to the DIFC and onshore HR community for the second consecutive year, and providing input to the DIFC on legislative developments.

The Stephenson Harwood team which contributed to winning these titles comprises employment partners Kiersten Lucas and Anne Pritam, and associate Emily Aryeetey, and data protection partner Jonathan Kirsop and associate Alison Llewellyn (neé Kenney).
