Corporate & Finance

Corporate & Finance teams are experts in strategic and complex operations.

We assist our clients, who might be entrepreneurs, managers, investment funds or corporate groups, in mergers and acquisitions (external growth, disposals, mergers, partial transfer of assets, joint ventures), both in France and internationally.

Our teams have developed recognized expertise in private equity transactions. We support our clients in their venture capital (fundraising) and development capital (majority investment, minority investment, LBOs) operations. We work alongside founders and investment funds in the implementation of employee and management profit-sharing schemes (management packages, founders’ share warrants, bonus shares).

We also work with entrepreneurs to assist them in asset transmission operations, to facilitate, organise and optimize the management of their assets.

We advise companies, financial institutions and institutional players in their financing operations (bank financing, mezzanine, corporate, acquisition or project debt).

Our teams have recognized expertise in advice for the establishment of French companies internationally and vice versa, especially in China. We regularly advise our clients on the growth of their groups abroad.

We work in a fully integrated manner with the other departments of the firm to provide relevant multidimensional advice.
