CS Avocats Associés’ affiliation strengthens the alliance’s professional services offering in one of the world’s largest economies and ensures the firm can provide global support to their clients.

Founded in 1997 by Cédric Séguin, the four partner firm offers legal services related to labour and employment, business, corporate, M&A and intellectual property to a broad client base which includes major hotel chains and one of the largest international trading companies in Western Africa. Staff at the firm conduct business in French, Spanish and English.

Cédric Séguin comments:

“We are excited to join Alliott Group in Paris. Being part of this fast-growing, dynamic alliance internationalizes our firm’s value proposition, increases our visibility, and keeps our people up to date on the global trends impacting our clients and our profession. We are very happy to be part of an alliance which keeps us independent, but which opens up new opportunities with like-minded law and accounting firms across the world who will provide high standards of service to our increasingly international client base.”

Alliott Group COO Giles Brake adds:

“As well as expanding to new countries, our growth strategy is also focused on consolidating our presence in specific key markets. Paris was one such location where we needed to broaden the range of legal expertise available to clients. We are therefore delighted to welcome Cédric and his team to the alliance. CS Avocats Associés is a dynamic law firm with strong leaders who have a clear vision of where they want to take the firm in the future. The firm passed through our rigorous selection process with flying colours. Furthermore, it is testimony to the collegial and entrepreneurial mindset within Alliott Group that we have achieved wider legal representation in Paris which will spark new opportunities for our member firms in France and across the world.”

This latest appointment continues the recent growth of the alliance’s legal membership across Europe, including in Slovenia (BGO), Sweden (Titov & Partners), Turkey (Burcu Doner Law Firm) and Ireland (BHSM, to be announced soon).
