How we do it

We analyze both the strictly legal aspects of our clients’ transactions and their strategic and media implications.

This holistic approach allows our clients, especially foreign ones, to get legal advice tailored to the specific challenges posed by the French market, where analysis of the political and institutional context is essential to the proper understanding of applicable regulations.

Corporate transactions

What we do

We have long-standing experience in fundraising, corporate M&A transactions and private debt structuring and restructuring. We also have a strong experience in the real estate, industrial and technology sectors. We place great emphasis on structuring legal solutions that are tailored to our client’s specific business needs.

  • Private equity and structured finance
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • General corporate law and corporate governance
  • Restructuring and insolvency proceedings

Whom we work for

  • Private equity funds
  • Institutional and strategic investors
  • Corporations

How we do it

We place great emphasis on analyzing the economic and tactical challenges posed by our clients’ operations to offer them tailor-made solutions that are adapted to their specific needs.

By analysing and accounting for the strategic and tactic aspects of our clients’ operations, we can anticipate specific risks to which they are exposed at a very early stage and provide tailor-made solutions, rather than sticking to the preparation of standardized contractual documentation that is potentially unsuited to the peculiarities of these operations.
