Isabelle Ayache-Revah, Partner,
Avocat au Barreau de Paris.
Lawyer, HR Expert
“Employment law is not just repeating the Labour Code. It means going beyond the text, it means working together with companies, communicating with the players, becoming totally familiar with the way the company has chosen to manage its human capital. The solution lies not in a handbook or a Jurisclasseur collection of legal information, but in the ability of Raphaël Avocats to use law to create a specific, concrete result tailored to each company’s situation.”
“An employment lawyer does not simply don black robes to plead before the Industrial Tribunal. Of course, we defend our clients, and energetically so. But we must also act as counsel, technicians, coaches, negotiators, researchers and mediators, because we must know how to anticipate the human dimension of things… Lawyers at Raphaël Avocats know how to act in anticipation, upstream, but also know how to step back and speak out. They must be experts in human resources above all.”

“One penchant: I like to negotiate. Whether with the staff representative bodies and trade-union organisations of the companies I assist, when carrying out changes with or without staff downsizing, or outside of any reorganisation scheme, in the daily approach to corporate employment law, in particular in implementation of company or group agreements or the prevention of collective or individual conflicts.”
