Creation of Emeriane Avocats, Business Partner of New Growth

Juliane Dessard Jacques and Eole Rapone announce the creation of their law firm specialized in corporate and capital markets laws, a boutique committed to the transition towards more resilient, innovative and sustainable growth.

Having each practiced for more than seven years at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, the co-founders of Emeriane Avocats are advising on mergers and acquisitions, strategic mergers, reorganizations and capital markets transactions. They provide long-term support to listed and unlisted companies in the highlights of their corporate life as well as in corporate governance and CSR matters.

"As partners of our clients, we offer them "all-in-one" support across the whole value chain, with pragmatic, innovative and tailor-made solutions focused on their operational expectations", according to the co-founders.

Facing major socio-economic changes and the multiplication of legal and regulatory requirements, Emeriane Avocats is committed to its clients to promote sustainable growth and transform constraints and challenges into new opportunities of value creation.

Convinced that business law is a powerful lever in the transition towards more resilient growth, Emeriane Avocats assists companies in all sectors to better take into account their social, societal and environmental impact by offering them a tailor-made integration of CSR, ESG and ethical matters.

Eager to give meaning to its activities, Emeriane Avocats has defined commitments in order to concretely embody its convictions: digitalization of its activities, environmental requirements, civic commitment and internal promotion of best practices in terms of social responsibility.

The firm has therefore decided to include in its articles of association a corporate purpose (raison d'être) guiding its approach to business law:

"Determined to play an active role In the transition towards a more sustainable and resilient economy, Emeriane Avocats assists Its clients in designing, structuring and implementing development and transformation projects by placing people at the core of its organization and vision of law."
