Joëlle Hannelais

Member of the Paris Bar

Joëlle joined the firm in 2012. She previously practiced within Bredin-Prat (1987-1989), Moquet Borde & Associés (1989-2004) and Latournerie Wolfrom & Associés (2004-2012).

Joëlle is a recognized expert in labour and employment law, in particular on matters relating to consequences following restructuring and transfer transactions and matters relating to mass redundancy schemes, employees representation and negotiations with unions.

She also acquired a wide experience in litigation, and in particular before labour law tribunals. Her assistance, given her strong experience, allows the anticipation of possible disputes arising from a transaction and to limit any potential consequences arising therefrom.

Joëlle is a member of the Association des Avocats d’Entreprise en Droit Social (AVOSIAL), the European Employment Lawyers Association (EELA) and the American Bar Association (ABA).
