The top city in France in terms of business creation, the Bordeaux metropolitan area is particularly attractive to entrepreneurs and benefits from a creative and cultural ecosystem that increases its competitiveness in relation to other French cities. The many recent and upcoming projects, such as the high speed line, the Cité du Vin, the development of new districts, and the new stadium, are testimony to the ebullience in Bordeaux.

The law firm Cornet Vincent Ségurel supports the fabric of the Bordeaux and Gironde based businesses that are behind this growth and inventiveness. Hubert Biard, a company law specialist, approved mediator, and head of the Bordeaux office, explains: "The Bordeaux metropolitan area attracts national and international companies working in strategic, innovative sectors which really need support and advice. For the past year, we have pursued the same aim of offering all our clients a high quality service that meets their needs and requirements. The firm relies on its national scope and strong regional presence to respond effectively to the different challenges faced by its clients."

Present south of the Loire for the last year, on Thursday 18 May the firm opened its new offices in Bordeaux. This first year has justified the partners’ instincts to settle in an area as buoyant as the capital of New Aquitaine.

From wine transactions to service companies and large industrial groups, the firm has become a key partner for local SME and middle market companies. It offers its clients comprehensive support not only in audit phases but also in business ownership transfer related operations.

All the firm’s lawyers and associates are expert in their fields: company law, raising capital, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, tax law and employment law. As the firm is a recognized training organization, it can also offer its clients the opportunity to give their executives pragmatic training on employment law developments.

As a pioneer in the field of mediation and arbitration, the firm regularly intervenes with a view to amicably settling disputes.
