Job Description

Our employment practice is the largest dedicated employment group in any law firm in the Middle East. The team’s combined extensive experience enables us to advise clients on all aspects of employment work, including transactional work, day to day employee relations advice and employment litigation.

The success of this practice is demonstrated by the fact that our clients extend not only to the region’s multinationals, government owned entities and local companies, but also to a large number of law firms operating in the region who do not have the ability to advise on this area of law.

We have built a reputation for providing the most relevant and comprehensive legal advice available and as we guide our clients through the complex and changing employment environment in the region, we aim to provide advice and assistance that is both practical and commercially viable. Ensuring that our lawyers remain at the forefront of any changes in regional law and in clear and regular communication to our clients is key to our approach.

Our expertise spans all aspects of employment law in the public and private sectors including policies, procedures and contractual documentation, litigation, employee relations issues, corporate support and business reorganisations.

Skills and Experience:

The ideal candidate will have 4-6 years PQE and will ideally be UK or Australia qualified. At least conversational Arabic is preferred as is local (KSA) experience. You must have the specific employment expertise relative to mainly non-contentious work. You must also have knowledge of incentives, redundancies, employment relations, policies, procedures, investigations and the employment side of Corporate Support.

About Al Tamimi & Company:

As the largest law firm in the Middle East, Al Tamimi & Company knows more than just the law. We pride ourselves on understanding the business environment in which we operate ultimately benefiting the clients we work with.

Established in Dubai in 1989, we have 14 offices across 8 countries with 237 fee earners, 43 partners, 531 employees and 41 nationalities. We are proud of where we have come from and excited about where we are heading.

As a full service law firm, we specialise in a range of practice areas - each being a genuine strength. We provide not only professional expertise but superior client service and quality strategic advice. We combine internationally qualified and experienced lawyers with lawyers who have deep local roots. Along with this, the ability to practice local law in each of the jurisdictions we are present, rights of audience before local courts, and licensed litigators in each of our offices, really sets us apart.

We have advised on some of the most complex legal issues and continue to be at the forefront of business and legal challenges facing our clients.

Our Saudi Arabia Office:

Our Saudi Arabia Office comprises a team of Saudi, Middle Eastern and Western lawyers completely integrated with and supported by Al Tamimi & Company’s network of 13 offices throughout the Middle East.

Recognising the importance of the Saudi Arabian market to its regional practice, Al Tamimi & Company chose to open in the capital city of Riyadh in March 2008, offering our clients a dedicated on-the-ground service in Saudi Arabia. Since opening in Riyadh the office has experienced steady growth and is consistently assigned to some of the most high profile matters in Saudi Arabia.

With a deep understanding of Saudi Arabian business, legal and regulatory systems, our Riyadh office has become a natural choice for companies locally, in the region and from around the globe when searching for legal advisors. The Firm is duly licensed to practice in its own name without a local association, allowing us to ensure consistent and high quality legal services to all of our clients.
