Work Department

Employment law


Jennifer Carrel joined the employment law team at UGGC Law Firm in 2006, first as an associate before becoming a partner in 2012.

Part of her work is devoted to international business and Jennifer is regularly dealing with clients based abroad, either when they get established in France or when they leave, or to deal with employment law aspects for their French subsidiaries.

Another significant part of her activity is devoted to employment aspects of company restructurings and transfers which naturally implies audits upstream but also job saving plans downstream.

Finally, Jennifer deals with all aspects of labor law and labor relationships for clients from the industrial, IT and electronic banking, telecommunications and show business sectors:

  • Social aspects of restructuring, individual employment relationships;
  • Audits, individual and collective dismissals, profit-sharing, employee shareholding;
  • Labor contracts negotiated departures, working time issues;
  • Daily management of social relations with French and international clients.

Jennifer‘s pragmatic approach is valued by her clients, as her ability take into account wider issues with a high level of awareness.
