Fabienne has recently re-joined Emms Gilmore Liberson, practising employment law. She qualified in 2002, having trained in London at international law firm, Ashurst. Like several of her colleagues, Fabienne worked at Lee Crowder and Cobbetts, before originally joining Emms Gilmore Liberson in 2013. She practised commercial litigation for six years, before turning her attention to employment law. During this time, she acted on many high-value, cross-jurisdictional claims, with particular experience of shareholder and partnership disputes.
Fabienne now acts for employers of all sizes, including SMEs, OMBs and larger national and international businesses. She advises them on Employment Tribunal claims (including unfair dismissal and discrimination), effecting dismissals and the negotiated departures of employees under settlement agreements.
Clients also come to Fabienne for advice on their day-to-day employment law queries relating to disciplinary matters, grievances and redundancies and she drafts contracts of employment and company policies and procedures. In non-contentious matters, Fabienne supports the firm’s Corporate team, by providing strategic and practical advice to clients in relation to the employment aspects of company and group restructuring, including collective and individual redundancy consultation procedures, as well as on business transfers and TUPE.
Fabienne holds a French law degree, has practised in Paris and is bilingual. She has acted for many international clients (including French-speaking companies), as well as for English companies with operations in French-speaking countries.
She is described in Legal 500 as “always on the ball and easy to talk to” and by Chambers & Partners as “approachable and knowledgeable”
