Paris: De Gaulle Fleurance EMEA Ltd. is a platform providing support and advice with respect to clients’ cross-border activities between the Middle East, Africa and Europe. The firm’s lawyers provide clients with assistance from the  Abu Dhabi’s office, working in synergy with teams based in Paris  during the various phases of their projects, from the initial establishment of a presence (public affairs consultancy), assistance in the context of clients’ investments (corporate, M&A, financing, PPP, dealing with international tender processes, etc.), to the management of their transactions in strategic sectors (energy, mining, infrastructures, banking, IP/IT, etc.), as well as on issues related to divestment, litigation and international arbitration.

The firm’s clients can rely on integrated teams, as well as on a network of local correspondents selected independently to deal with legal aspects specific to the target countries. Correspondents are selected according to each project’s requirements.  

De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés has extensive experience in advising key players in the EMEA region (companies, DFIs, investment funds, governments…), with multidisciplinary teams (including an integrated OHADA practice). The firm’s lawyers advise Gulf clients on projects in Africa and Europe, pan-African institutions, and international groups regarding their investments in Africa and in the Middle East.

“The growth of the economic flows between the Middle East and Africa was a decisive factor in our choice to open this subsidiary in the United Arab Emirates, which is a real hub for international business in the EMEA region“, explains Jean-Baptiste Santelli, partner at De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés and director of the Abu Dhabi subsidiary. “It is a way for us to get closer to our clients who are already relying on our recognised full-service expertise for dealing with transactions in this geographical area”.
