Employment and Benefits


​Our French Employment team works alongside clients to ensure the success of their most complex operations in France and internationally.

We advise businesses seeking to define, implement and/or improve their human resource management strategies. We have expertise in the full range of employment law issues, including the employee aspects of business reorganisations (restructurings, outsourcings and M&A), employee representation structures, negotiation of collective agreements, collective and individual employment disputes, executive severance, remuneration compliance, incentive schemes, discrimination and privacy issues and multi-jurisdictional employment matters. 

Ever-evolving labour law reforms and regulatory change means that we are always one step ahead, guiding our clients on how to respond and developing individual and creative solutions to meet their strategic needs. We are accessible, pragmatic and hands-on, with expertise in communicating directly with workers, employee representatives and regulatory authorities on HR and reward issues.

What our clients say about us:
