HERALD structures its Companies in difficulty department by welcoming Fabrice Dalat, as a partner, and his team, composed of one associate and one lawyer. This arrival brings the firm’s staff to 45 lawyers, including 17 partners. The firm’s positioning is to provide a top-of-the-range, tailor-made and cross-disciplinary service to its clients in order to respond to the most complex issues, both in advisory and litigation matters.

The law of companies in difficulty, a complementary expertise.

HERALD draws on the expertise of Fabrice Dalat and his team in order, in particular, to meet the needs of clients in terms of advice and support for companies in difficulty but also in insolvency proceedings. In his activity, Fabrice Dalat will be able to rely on the complementary expertise of Pierre-Yves Rossignol and Etienne Rocher and will be supported transversally by the employment law and tax departments, headed by Guillaume Roland and Réginald Legenre respectively, and the M&A department with Antoine Denis-Bertin, Bertrand Pébrier, and Vincent Siguier.

Fabrice DALAT has a strong reputation in the treatment of companies in difficulty, both amicably and judicially, and advises judicial administrators, judicial representatives and company managers.

As a correspondent for Chartered Accountants, he assists clients in dealing with their difficulties in order to find the most appropriate solutions for their crisis situation.

Today, the treatment of companies in difficulty requires being able to rely on increasingly diversified skills. So it makes sense for me to integrate my practice in insolvency law at HERALD; the cross-functionality with my new partners in employment law, M&A, IP and tax law will enable me to provide a more complete and structured offer for clients. In addition, the firm is welcoming and motivated by my arrival and that of my team“, Fabrice Dalat is delighted to say.

The arrival of Fabrice and his team confirms our desire to strengthen and structure our expertise in the law of companies in difficulty. His team is already actively supporting the departments that are currently experiencing strong growth: labour law, tax law and M&A” says the Herald’s partners.
