Point of view Yvon Dreano
"The strong international reputation of JeantetAssocies is very important. The majority of the transactions that I handle are cross-border which enables us to create special links with top-level foreign law firms. The fourth generation of JeantetAssocies lawyers retains its individuality as independent lawyers within a varied and interdependent team."
