First of all, we can say that our international dimension illustrates our diversity :  

  • 12 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. 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 and our lawyers are also doing some probono .  

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. 

We advise 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 250 law professionals with highly regarded expertise in the main business law practices

We have offices in 12 different countries:

– Paris (Head office)
