The Galion Way
Galion is a firm specialised in employment and labour law with a faithful client base of national and international companies. Lionel Paraire established the business more than 10 years ago with the vision of offering a comprehensive solution to complex employment law needs. The practice has since grown to a team of four, with three lawyers.
Loyalty and equality are watchwords at Galion and an important part of our culture and ethos. Our close-knit team of lawyers treat their clients in the same way, taking pride in finding the best solutions.
We advise companies in the industrial, banking, insurance, new technologies, consulting services, and medical or veterinary sectors.
When complex employment structures trigger a need for specialist support in other areas of law, we are able to bring the trusted resources to resolve any issues.
Lionel Paraire is member of Juris Initiative, which is a network of independent attorneys offering a transverse and dynamic approach to business law.
In addition, Galion often works with human resources advisors, management consultants, auditors and other strategic advisors.

HR Director, Groupama Asset Management
The Galion team, particularly Lionel Paraire, has been advising Soitec for more than five years on various matters relating to labour law and employment law. In addition, the firm assists the company on a regular basis with respect to labour court litigation. A real partnership developed over time, providing customised advice assessment of risk-taking and the different options available, especially from the legal angle but also from that of the company’s in-house realities and its corporate culture. Galion combines the responsiveness and complementarity advantages of a structured team with the customised relationship of a more “boutique”-like approach.
