The Labor Law Department assists its clients both in consulting and in litigation. The team deals with the various aspects of labor law with a transversal and pragmatic approach:
The lawyers in the Labor Law Department provide their responsiveness and technical expertise, as serene as it is solid, to companies of all sizes: small and medium-sized businesses, as well as large French and international groups in a wide variety of sectors, including industry, telecommunications, audiovisual production, complementary social protection, transportation, live entertainment, banking and health services.
They also protect the interests of executives, managers and corporate officers when they are hired or leave their position.
The team has also acquired a particular expertise in social security law, and specifically in health and safety legislation relating to work accidents and occupational diseases.
The team has built up a solid litigation experience in all types of litigation relating to labor and social security law (individual and collective labor disputes, specific labor disputes and alternative dispute resolution) and frequently appears before the “Conseil de Prud'hommes” the “Tribunal Judiciaire” and the Court of Appeal.
The department also organizes regular training mornings and thematic breakfasts to decode the latest legislative, regulatory and jurisprudential changes.
The Business Law Department advises and assists its clients in all the transactional operations that impact their activities.
The lawyers in the Business Law Department have acquired a solid expertise in corporate and equity transactions (partial contributions of assets, mergers, demergers), both on the domestic and international markets, for companies (listed and unlisted) as well as for banks and investment funds. They assist clients at all stages of the transaction: confidentiality and exclusivity agreements, offer letters, audits, structuring of the transaction, drafting and negotiation of the documentation, completion of the transaction and follow-up of post-transaction operations.
For these complex transactions, often with international aspects, the Department is able to mobilize and coordinate lawyers who are experts in adjacent disciplines and high-quality foreign lawyers. Our lawyers thus provide a global approach to the cases at hand as part of an integrated service. The law firm also provides corporate monitoring and advice on all business and corporate law issues inherent to its clients' activities.
The Business Law Department assists its clients, both in consulting and in litigation, on the various aspects of business law:
Each of our departments has lawyers who frequently handle litigation in their field.
They have extensive experience in civil, commercial, administrative, labor and disciplinary litigation, as well as in specific areas of expertise, such as aviation litigation (defense of airlines in their commercial disputes), health, information technology, luxury and fashion. Several of them also practice alternative dispute resolutions (mediation, conciliation, arbitration, settlement, participative procedure, collaborative law).
The firm also offers proven expertise in business criminal law and press law. It assists its clients in cases of civil or criminal liability of company directors. Moreover, it participates in audits and provides training on all the risks that its clients are potentially confronted with in their business sector.
Our law firm is resolutely turned towards the international. We assist our clients who are French companies in their international activities, as well as assist international companies established in France, or for their operations in France. We also intervene in the context of transnational operations and disputes and ensure the coordination of all the foreign actors involved. Our teams are multicultural and work daily in French, English, Spanish, Italian, German and Vietnamese.
We are members of the international PRIMERUS network, which includes nearly 200 leading law firms in 40 countries on 5 continents. This network represents a strength that we make available to our clients, but jasper avocats remains independent: our choice of a local correspondent is always guided by the desire to find the best expert and the most relevant contact for our clients.
Furthermore, we are very involved with the International Union of Lawyers (UIA) which allows us to regularly exchange with colleagues on the evolution of the law in our sectors of activity. This organization brings together more than 2,200 individual members and 200 bars, federations and associations in 110 countries.
The Law of Associations and Foundations department advises and assists its clients in structuring, financing and promoting the associative approach.
The department has a strong expertise in legacies and donations, and works to defend the interests of associations and foundations in the context of gifts granted to them, before notaries or the courts (interpretation of wills, judicial delivery of legacies, actions relating to real estate received, proceedings relating to life insurance, as well as any other litigation generated by these gifts).
We also intervene at all stages of the life of these non-profit organizations, from their creation to their eventual transformation or dissolution. We offer them the most suitable legal schemes and then accompany them in their development. Furthermore, we can help them manage their administrative procedures and even their relations with their employees, whether they are volunteers or employees.
Finally, we assist them in all types of pre-litigation or litigation situations, which may involve their responsibility or in which they would seek the responsibility of a third party, both before civil and criminal courts.
This is a singular and relatively new offer but generosity must be simple and transparent. Giving and receiving require organization and knowledge of good practices and rules to respect.
