However, is this applicable to United Arab Emirates law? Can you please explain futher on how I can take this further because whenever googling my company/brand name - their company is appearing on search results too as the developer of the site when I already fired them and hired a different developer. I even changed the domain name but they seem to want to associate themselves with the brand considering I have lost a lot of money for a fault of hiring them in the beginning.
Isn't it companies should ask permission from clients before service provider can use the client company or brand name on their literature or list it on their client list on website?
Thanks & regards,
