Laure regularly advises multinational companies, particularly in the technology and financial institution sectors, with respect to their French operations, covering the entire spectrum of employment issues, including individual and collective bargaining agreements, labour relations and dispute resolution, as well as employment issues arising out of mergers and acquisitions and restructuring programmes.
Laure previously formed the Paris employment law practice of Simmons & Simmons, which she joined in 1994, becoming a partner in 2003. She began her career in the legal department of the French social security administration (URSSAF) in Paris in 1990 before joining the law firm David Gage SELARL in 1992.

George Paterson, managing partner of the Paris office of Norton Rose LLP, commented:
“We are particularly pleased to welcome Laure Joncour and her team. Their experience in managing the requirements of multinational concerns, in particular working with their subsidiaries to understand the implications and requirements of French employment law will be an asset for our Group. More generally, their expertise will compliment ideally the services which we offer our French and international clients across the full range of their business activities.”
Laure Joncour added:
“I have followed keenly the international developments of Norton Rose Group. Their global reputation, their innovative key sector approach and the synergies between the teams in their global offices were convincing factors in my decision to join them.”
