LMBE Avocats adds new Partners
LMBE law firm renews its digital universe with a new website and strengthens its Litigation/Insolvency department with the arrival of Céline Dilman and its M&A and Financial Law departments with the addition of Stéphanie Roy.
The firm updates its digital universe with a brand new website (www. lmbeavocats.com) and its image based on the evolution of its position as reflected in its new logo, ‘LMBE - Legal Minds Business Experts’.
Céline Dilman joined LMBE, the Parisian independent one-stop law firm, in January 2017. She is an experienced litigator and, as such, represents her clients before both civil and commercial courts. She focuses on commercial and corporate matters, as well as alternative dispute resolution. She has also developed expertise in matters relating to reorganisations and insolvencies of distressed companies. In this context, she assists and represents not only distressed companies, but also their creditors and potential investors. Her practice is focused on commercial real estate matters, both on the transactional side (negotiation and drafting of commercial leases) and on the litigation side (commercial lease renewal, eviction indemnities, and termination clauses). She advises a clientele of French groups and companies in the areas of the industry, telecommunication, publishing distribution, logistics, financial institutions and real estate.
Stéphanie Roy joined LMBE in February 2017 as M&A Partner. Stéphanie is primarily active in the field of mergers and acquisitions, private equity, investments funds and securities law. Her vision and experience is highly sought after in litigations relating to such areas of law. She advises a clientele of listed and/or family groups in the areas of consumer goods, industry, telecommunications, real estate and financial services.
Stéphanie is often described as a lively person and sharp professional. She favours a tailor-made strategic approach integrating anticipation, piloting and follow-up in order to preserve to a maximum extent the time and interests of her clients. Stéphanie is involved in training in the field of contract law and business law. She also uses her expertise for innovation, being involved in the new crowdfunding regulation, lobbying efforts for legal reforms, and is also involved in think tanks for economical and legal outcomes.
In 2017, LMBE includes 40 attorneys and lawyers among whom are 16 partners, qualified to practice in all areas of business law.
Its organisation in different clusters allows the needs of its French and international clients to be addressed pragmatically and efficiently based on local market understanding. LMBE law firm has a tailor-made approach, of which its utmost priorities are:
- Providing a high-quality service in every legal field it serves;
- Maintaining great flexibility and reactivity in order to promote the strategic interests of its clients;
- Developing long-term relationships personally with its clients;
- Performing an in-depth follow-up through the personal involvement of its partners;
- Providing high value-added support as a tailor-made approach driven by seasoned partners;
- Steadily driving its expertise onto innovative legal tools, such as debt investment funds, blockchain or crowdfunding; and
- Having a flexible and competitive billing policy, accompanying the long-term developments and successes of its clients.
LMBE stands ready to answer the needs that should arise from the awaited economic reforms and growth announced by the new President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron. By the end of August, French labour law should be reformed for the purpose of capping financial penalties for companies sued by dismissed employees and to allow businesses more flexibility to define internal working rules; in other words, to make it easier to hire and fire people. This fresh approach should soon be strengthened by other reforms expected for the end of 2017, in the areas of tax (a decrease in the tax rate on capital gains resulting from the sale of securities) and the French retirement regime. A major improvement in French financial regulations should follow soon as well.
