Leading French law firm Gide Loyrette Nouel has lost high-profile employment partner Joel Grange along with a six-lawyer team to labor and employment law boutique Flichy Avocats.

Grange, who has coordinated the employment law department at Gide, will become a name partner at the boutique, which will now rebrand as Flichy Grange Avocats. Marine Conche, Blandine Allix and Nabila El Aougri will also join as partners.
