First of all, we can say that our international dimension illustrates our diversity :
- 13 foreign offices (in Asia, Africa, Middle East and Europe (with women as partners and associates)
- 5 foreign desks in Paris (German, Africa, Japan, Middle-East and China)
- 1st Franco-German Law Firm
- More than 15 nationalities are represented within the firm
Secondly, we have achieved parity, with 50% women partners, more than 50% women heads of departments, and at our Comex, a Chairwoman, 50% women heads of support functions. This situation reflects our constant collective vigilance to implement a genuine gender equality policy.
This successful gamble is undoubtedly explained by the fact that the firm, founded on the initiative of two men, were led by three female associates during more than 35 years ago. They were committed to carrying and transmitting this diversity.
Our objective is to maintain this parity within the firm and to enable women to take on responsibilities by ensuring that the balance between professional and private life is respected.
A series of concrete measures implemented by the management ensure this objective : an equal salary policy, flexible meeting hours, access to mobility, the right to disconnection, the right to replace women on maternity leave, support for women returning from maternity leave, access for talent to partner positions and to management bodies, the promotion of talent in support functions, feminization of names, etc.
Our Firm published its 2nd CSR report in early 2020. We were the first Law Firm to publish a CSR report, aware very early of the spine that this could represent within an organization.
This 2020 Report, which aims to gather and illustrate our approaches, particularly in terms of governance, diversity, environment, etc., reflects the commitments in which the firm’s women and men find themselves.
Finally, our law firm is engaged in associations. For example , the firm is a partner of the Relay Night (la Nuit des relais) organized by the Women’s Foundation (Fondation des Femmes) at the Grand Palais (Paris). It is a festive, supportive and a sporting evening of fundraising for the Women’s Foundation, whose main action is to financially and legally support associations working to promote gender equality and combat violence against women. Our lawyers are also doing some probono : for example, during the covid-19, some lawyers contributed to the drafting of a partnership agreement, at the end of which Gecina made available free of charge to the associations of the Fédération Nationale Solidarité des Femmes network several equipped and vacant dwellings in its student residences to accommodate women victims of domestic violence for a period of four months.
To conclude, our diversity and commitment values allows us to attract great talent by offering an international platform open to the world and other cultures.
For more than 20 years, we have been advising foreign clients in France and accompany our French clients in their international projects.
Our law firm has chosen to be part of a strong international approach with a network of 230 law professionals with highly regarded expertise in the main business law practices
We have offices in 13 different countries:
– Paris (Head office)
– Algiers, Casablanca
– Hong Kong
Our Office in Paris have developed International desks: Africa, China, German, Japan and Middle-East Desks.
This multicultural dimension allows us to have a team speaking French, English, Spanish, German, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Mandarin.
We also have special relationships with “Best Friends” law firms in countries in which we do not have offices.
“This international dimension is part of the firm’s DNA, and reflects our values of openness and collectivity.”
