Jean Néret is a Partner and agrégé of the Law Faculties.

Jean Néret was admitted to the Paris Bar 1977 and, after a few years of professional practice, he passed the agrégation exam in private law in 1982.

In 1990, he left business law, his primary vocation, to set up the Employment Law Department within the Jeantet law firm, as he sensed the place that human relations law would take within large companies.

At the same time, he held the chair of labour law at the University of Paris XII.

On 1 January 2020, he joined the FTMS law firm with his entire team of about ten people in total, which deals with all issues of employment law (individual, collective and criminal) and social security law.
