Labour and Employment
We work with you during each phase of your company’s existence; we assist you and examine solutions with you to prevent crisis situations as well as the best strategies to defend your company.
From hiring to termination of employment, we advise you while taking into consideration the specific characteristics of your business as well as the contractual and legal rules that apply to your legal structure. We also advise your Management team and executives.
Our twenty years of experience have taught us to give priority to negotiation, but also to plan for litigation if it cannot be avoided.
We are also by your side for all disputes related to human resources management (individual and collective disputes) and before any courts in France (Labour, Civil, Criminal and Administrative Courts).
We rely on the complementary areas of expertise of our firm’s teams (corporate, tax, commercial, intellectual property and communication-media law) to provide comprehensive and practical legal advice.
Examples of issues facing our clients:
You’re planning to terminate an employment contract?
We advise you on the procedure to take in order to avoid a dispute and we help you implement the procedure.
