Employment – Social Security

We assist companies and groups, both French and foreign, in all areas of labour and social security law, in matters of individual and collective relations, both in advisory and litigation matters.

We are at your side to assist you in all your labour and social security issues, on a day-to-day basis, as well as in the context of specific projects such as reorganisations, acquisitions, disposals and transfers of activities, from social audits to the negotiation of guarantees.

In the context of mergers and acquisitions and private equity transactions, we work with our Corporate – M&A – Private Equity team to offer you a global and tailored solution that meets your needs.

We work in all economic sectors, in particular new technologies, biotechnologies, industry, real estate, energy, tourism and culture.

We also assist executives in negotiating entry and exit packages, whether voluntary or not.

Finally, we defend your interests before the labour, civil and administrative courts.
