At Valoris Avocats, supporting diversity belongs to our core values. We embrace the full spectrum of humanity, no matter their gender, race, age, religion or sexual orientation. We do believe in a full human approach, in the sense that we cultivate the values of respect and integrity.

By putting human at the core of our business, we thrive to create an environment in which our employees can feel valued and included. We work as a team, convinced that together we can go further. As a group, we promote diversity and inclusion in any way we can. As an individual, we proof empathy, develop our listening abilities, and engage in constructive dialogues.

Where other people might see difference, we see a way of bringing new ideas to the table. Indeed, each individual thinks differently, and therefore has ideas that differentiate him (or her) from his (her) neighbour. We believe these ideas, all ideas, are worth mentioning. That is why we encourage so much our people to stand up for themselves and to express their ideas openly.

The firm is committed to:

• Create a safe working environment

• Help prevent any kind of discrimination that may occur

• Be as diverse as the clients we serve

2 new partners were appointed September 2021; these appointments are part of the firm’s plan to focus on internal growth in order to strengthen the expertise of the entire team.

Finally, trust towards our employees is one the foundation of our business. We believe that the happier the employees will be, the more our business will thrive. Therefore, we put solutions into place for them to feel trusted and listened: flexible working hours, hybrid work solutions, part-time work. With Covid-crisis, fostering a healthy work environment has never been so important. As remote work grew, trusting people we work with seems vital to the company’s sustainability.
