Lawyer specialized in Labour law since 1990, François Barbé holds a post-graduate degree in Private law (DEA). First of all, he was head of the legal department of a professional organization for a period of 5 years. This allowed him to acquire the necessary expertise in advice, training and negotiation. In particular, his direct involvement in inter-professional negotiations provided a very rich source of practical insights.

In 1995, François joined the labour and employment law service of Editions Lamy to write and develop the range of publications dedicated to staff representation. This is when he drafted the “Staff Representation” part of “Lamy social” and the “Lamy Comité d’entreprise”. Then he created “les Cahiers Lamy du CE”. The “Lamy Prud’hommes” was also entrusted to him.

François also headed up out numerous transversal editorial projects and actively contributed to the “Seminars and Training”.

He was then entrusted with the management of the “Editions sociales”.

His years spent at Editions Lamy allowed him to acquire a solid expertise in Collective Labour Law (labour relations, WC law/, trade union law). Since 2012, Francois has developed a practice to accompany executives when they take up office as president of an elected representative body and, more broadly/ support projects with companies.

At the same time, he teaches labour and employment law and specifically collective labour law at the University Paris V (Descartes) as well as at business schools (Institute de Gestion Sociale, groupe ESA). This year, he was in charge of the law on economic dismissals, the law on collective bargaining and labour relations.
