Capital Croissance

Founded in 1953, Degroux Brugère has historically been specialised in providing tax advice to family groups and private clients including corporate founders and managers, more specifically on business transfers matters, mergers and acquisitions, asset management as well as tax audits.

The firm has also developed a strong Corporate practice, allowing the team to accompany their clients on tax-related matters as well as daily legal issues, transactional work and restructuring for French or foreign private clients, companies or investors.

In recent years, the firm has set up a restructuring team : Both in prevention (conciliation, ad hoc mandate) and insolvency proceedings, this restructuring team has an in-depth knowledge of financing mechanisms of companies, as well as corporate and tax issues which companies have to face. Furthermore, the team has a strong judicial experience of insolvency proceedings that facilitates the definition of the strategy as well the control over the court schedule.

Labour law and litigation complete the firm’s offer and gives it a multidisciplinary capacity of action.

The founding partners have been joined in recent years by younger partners who convey a dynamic and entrepreneurial vision of the profession, while remaining deeply attached to the original values of the firm: excellence and quality in client relations.

Today, Degroux Brugère gathers nine partners and some fifteen associates and legal professionals.
