Founded in 2018 by Velin Valev, Christophe Théron & Bruno Fiacre, Valther is a business law firm based in Paris and Bordeaux with renowned expertise in Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity, employment law and business litigation.

The firm offers a demanding clientele a wide range of expertise in business law and a tailor-made quality service that meets all legal needs, in their national and international aspects, while maintaining the qualities of responsiveness, availability and flexibility specific to independent firms.

Its network of foreign correspondents (Best Friends) in the various European jurisdictions and in the United States allows smooth handling of cases with supranational dimensions.

Dynamism and pragmatism are the main strengths of the lawyers making up the teams, having enabled the firm to acquire a solid reputation in its areas of expertise.

Most of the lawyers at the Valther firm have a multidisciplinary background: their academic training in law is supplemented by another degree (specialization, business school, Grande Ecole, chartered accountancy degree or LLM obtained in an Anglo-Saxon university), allowing thus the teams also benefit from a business vision of legal issues and great ease in dealing with multi-jurisdictional and multilingual cases.

The lawyers of the Valther firm are particularly distinguished by the quality of their listening, their advice and their ability to understand the specificities and challenges of the different sectors of activity in order to offer solutions adapted to clients.

Thanks to the quality of the services offered, the firm has experienced strong growth since its installation. The firm, which had around ten lawyers when it was created in July 2018, now has around thirty.
