The firm

Our history

The firm was founded in 1987. From the beginning, we focused on the growing area of law relating to public companies. On this foundation, we established a highly developed expertise in major corporate transactions and dispute resolution.

We have continued to grow these two practices through the present day, regularly expanding our ranks to admit new partners from a variety of backgrounds, and creating in the process mergers and acquisition and dispute resolution teams that are among the most highly regarded in Paris.

At the end of the 1990s, we began to expand into new areas in order to continue to provide our clients with the service that had become our hallmark: rigor, creativity and a depth of experience, each assured by the significant personal involvement of our partners.

As a result, our offerings grew to include competition law, public law, financing and restructuring, and tax. As these practice areas have matured they have gained in prominence, and each is now widely recognized as a market leader in its own right.

In recent years, we have developed significant expertise in international and cross-border transactions, including some of the largest and most complex deals in France and the world. Finally, we have expanded our practice to include white-collar criminal matters.

Our values

From our inception, our guiding principle has been to build and maintain singular relationships with our clients, borne of trust, devotion and integrity, and an intense focus on the quality of our work and constant innovation.

These values define us, and it is through this shared vision that we have continued to slowly grow while maintaining our distinctive character. Our attorneys and our clients are committed to preserving these qualities, which are the basis of our hard-earned reputation.
