Stephenson Harwood wins 'Employment Team of the Year' at Middle East Legal Awards


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has been named 'Employment Team of the Year' at the 2017 Middle East Legal Awards.

Judges cited the team's work advising the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Courts and Authority on its employment law regime as being central to the win.

“It has been an exciting year for the employment team in Dubai, and it is pleasing to see the team's hard work recognised on such a major platform,” said Rovine Chandrasekera, office managing partner at Stephenson Harwood's Dubai office. “We have been instrumental in the development of employment law in Dubai, and continue to work with the DIFC particularly in relation to employment and pensions law; we look forward to building on this success.”

In February 2017, the Stephenson Harwood employment team was awarded the honorary title of "Specialists in DIFC Employment Law" in Dubai; the team was also named Legal Education Law Firm of the Year at the Annual Legal Gala 2016, and received an honorary mention at The Oath Legal Awards 2016.
