‘The quality of the V&A team lies in several factors: – partners who are passionate about their profession and who have a good knowledge of the company they advise – partners who are personally involved in the files, go into detail, are constructive and offer solutions – light teams who always work together on the same client – partners who work well together between practices. With respect to other firms, I find them more involved, offering high-quality work with reasonable fees.’

Vivien & Associés > Firm Profile
Vivien & Associés was founded in 1999 by lawyers originating from the corporate M&A, tax and labour practices of international law firms. The intention was to establish a firm of quality service, characterised by responsiveness and independence which aimed at meeting the requirements of a sophisticated international clientele without imposing the inconvenience and sparseness of larger firms.
The firm has retained a hands-on, partner-led approach in its manner of assisting clients today. It provides clients with top-quality, competitive service by proposing small, solution-oriented teams tailored to meet clients’ specific needs.
Most attorneys combine first-tier French legal training with a degree in business management (HEC, ESSEC, Sciences Po). Many attorneys also hold a law degree from another country (LLM-type). The firm’s lawyers are thus well attuned to the business environment and at ease with multi-jurisdictional matters.
The firm has an extensive network of law partners across the world. This international network is composed of independent, specialist law firms, each a leader in their respective fields and jurisdictions. It has selected them carefully and has developed strong, non-exclusive working relationships over the years. They share the firm’s commitment to providing efficient and pragmatic solutions.
