Update: DLA Piper Puts Dubai Lawyers on ‘Sabbatical’ View Count: 45
Those taking the sabbatical are not guaranteed a job when it is over, which means it’s not really a sabbatical, is it?
The firm has relocated an undisclosed number of lawyers from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, and announced reduced working hours and pay for other staff.
