Rachel Hill heads our Employment practice advising on all aspects of employment law. A UK qualified lawyer, Rachel has over 14 years’ experience in both litigation and employment and has spent the last 10 years in the Middle East providing strategic advice to employers on all aspects of Employment Law including arbitrary dismissal, end of service entitlements, commission and incentive entitlements as well as breaches of non-compete and confidentiality obligations. Rachel holds extensive experience in, and understanding of, the local UAE Court system and has developed an integral understanding of the procedural requirements of filing litigation before the Dubai Labour Courts – a unique capability for a non-Arabic speaking lawyer.
