Creation of Emeriane Avocats, Business Partner of New Growth

Juliane Dessard Jacques and Eole Rapone announce the creation of their law firm specializing in corporate and capital markets laws, a boutique firm committed to the transition to 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 advise on mergers and acquisitions, strategic mergers, reorganizations and capital markets transactions. They provide long-term support to listed and unlisted companies for the milestones of their corporate life, as well as in Corporate Governance and CSR matters.

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

Facing major socio-economic changes and proliferation of legal and regulatory requirements, Emeriane Avocats commits to promoting sustainable growth and transforming constraints and challenges into new opportunities for value creation for its clients.

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

Eager to give meaning to its activities, Emeriane Avocats has defined commitments that 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 to a sustainable and more resilient economy, Emeriane Avocats works alongside its clients to design, structure and implement development and transformation projects, placing people at the core of its organization and vision of law."

Emeriane Avocats has also committed to donate 5% of its annual turnover to several recognized non-profit organizations sharing common values and working for the preservation of the environment and a more inclusive society.

Convinced that the transition to sustainable and resilient growth is a source of value creation, Juliane assists companies from all business sectors in their strategic decisions to take into account their social and environmental impacts and to incorporate CSR and ESG matters in their policies.
