In the regions, the Special Cases activity is headed up by Sophie Nayrolles (Montpellier) and Joachim Bernier (Nantes), while Marie Robineau (Nantes) bolsters the firm’s expertise in Distressed Companies and Recovery.
This nationwide activity, linked to collaborative management and remarkable team cohesion, allows Simon Associés to tune into the needs of its clients, in Paris and in the regions.
To extend the national presence, Jean-Charles Simon set up the dedicated Simon Avocats network bringing together independent business law firms in the main French cities.
