Creation of AXTEN Law Firm

On 1 October, AXTEN Law Firm opened its doors in Aix-en-Provence, Lyon, Paris and Shanghai.

Led by nine partners and composed of close to 50 associates, AXTEN is an independent French corporate law firm focused on companies, entrepreneurs, and their projects. It thus offers specialised expertise in the main areas of business law and provides executives with both general legal advice and litigation assistance at every stage of the life of their business, from its formation to its sale.

Teamwork in the service of their clients

Whatever their primary area of expertise, the AXTEN teams work in complete synergy: this is currently the case, in particular:

  • on merger transactions, thanks to its integrated legal, tax and labour due diligence capabilities
  • or on group reorganisation transactions, both as to advice on tax optimisation and human resources and as to litigation of contractual, post-sale or acquisition disputes
  • or on projects for international expansion.

Transactions are in the process of being finalised.
