75017 PARIS

The regions Tier 1

Vaughan Avocats is home to some 50 lawyers and has a broad range of expertise. It is particularly recognised for its employment law and mobility expertise. The firm has its main office in Paris and secondary offices in Rennes, Sophia Antipolis, Toulouse and Versailles. Internationally, the firm has an office in Bamako managed by Daouda Ba, who is ‘easy to work with and always gives proper advice’.

The firm: Vaughan Avocats opened in Paris in 2005, at the time specialising in social security law, mergers and acquisitions and fundraising. With the opening of the Toulouse office in 2006, a department specialising in international mobility was created.

The opening of the Sophia Antipolis office then occurred in 2008. In the following years, the firm expanded its areas of expertise with the appointment of its first business taxation partner in 2010. In 2012 Vaughan Avocats hired its competition and distribution practices partner and also opened an office in Bamako (Mali). The following year, the firm opened its office in Rennes, while its office in Toulouse welcomed four new partners.

In 2014 Vaughan Avocats elected a new managing partner and implemented a new governance structure. A new office also opened in Versailles while four senior associates were promoted to partner. The firm thus passed the 50 lawyer threshold.

Areas of practice: Vaughan Avocats is an independent commercial law practice gathering over 50 lawyers with offices in Paris, Toulouse, Sophia Antipolis, Rennes, Versailles and Bamako. What sets the firm apart is its innovative approach, blending commercial law and taxation with employment. The way in which its teams collaborate is an asset to any reorganisation, restructuring or reindustrialisation project.
