Founded in 1992, Simon Associés is a business law firm with an established reputation, present in Paris, Lyon, Nantes, Montpellier and Fort-de-France. The firm currently employs almost 100 lawyers and legal experts. Attentive to its clients’ needs and sensitive to their financial imperatives, Simon Associés has developed a comprehensive legal service offering based on a chain of skill centers. The firm’s activity was initially developed in areas that remain its core business: disposals and acquisitions, private equity, banking law and financing, distressed companies, franchises, networks and distribution, in both counsel and litigation. These areas of expertise have led Simon Associés to broaden its expertise with the creation of complementary departments in tax law, real estate law, labor law, international law, information and communication networks law and, more recently, in health law and compliance.
The strength of this firm, which remains on a human scale, stems from several key assets: its teams and its legal expertise for a start, but also its responsiveness and availability, underpinned by thorough knowledge of the business world as well as the practices and power relationships in an ever more competitive economy. These assets underpin the culture of Simon Associés, which, on the basis of qualified procedures and a structured organization, has developed a cross-cutting approach to the prevention of legal and judicial risks. The implementation of actions and tools that factor in the company’s technical, economic, human, legal and operational environment guarantees its clients a reduced level of risk.
A fully-fledged player in the legal world, Simon Associés is a member of numerous organizations in the economic sphere and regularly publishes articles on business news, as well as various electronic newsletters devoted to legal developments in France and internationally.
