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.
