JOFFE & Associés cooperates with the junior company HEC Junior Conseil

The purpose of this partnership is to provide a professional quality legal response to the consulting missions carried out by HEC Junior Conseil for its clients
It also allows us to create long-lasting relationships with students following the HEC/Law double curriculum at Paris I - La Sorbonne and Paris II - Assas.


To provide its clients with global coverage, J&A has been building, for more than 15 years, close links with top-tier law firms abroad, which it remains free to select. As an independent firm, J&A works with carefully selected structures that share the same characteristics (size, working methods, values and areas of expertise).


  • Origins

    From the outset Joffe & Associés is founded on a simple premise: taking a comprehensive approach to each case by providing a multi-disciplinary and cross-divisional solution. One of the first clients is a Japanese group, outlining the international fabric of the firm.

  • The age of reason

    The expertise of Joffe & Associé takes structure with the creation of the corporate, commercial, employment, real estate and litigation departments. The firm brings on board five young partners, Géraldine Lepeytre, Thomas Saltiel, Tehani Goy, Thomas Lepeytre and Fabrice Hercot, still present today. Joffe & Associés now counts more than a dozen professionals.

  • Maturity

    Joffe & Associés moves into its current offices in the 16th district. The firm enjoys strong annual growth. Permanently anchored from a geographical and business point of view, the firm consolidates its established skills by multiplying its teams, and bringing in three new partners: Mathieu Gaudemet, in charge of the new Public and Regulatory Law department, David Tavernier in charge of the Real Estate department and Aymeric Dégremont, who becomes a partner in the Corporate department.

  • London Calling

    Conscious of its international potential, Joffe & Associés opens an office in London. This new gateway enables the firm to continue structuring its wide-reaching network of correspondents, first of all in Europe, followed by Asia, the Middle East and the United States. The Employment Law department welcomes a new partner: Blaise Deltombe. A new area of expertise opens up in Sport Law with the arrival of Romain Soiron, who becomes a partner in 2014. Olivier Cavézian comes on board as a partner in 2014 to set up a Competition Law department.

  • New partners

    Strengthened by a stable level of activity and a team made up of fifteen partners and close to twenty-five associates, Joffe & Associés has a new aim: to become the ambassadors of French know-how. Confident in the potential of French entrepreneurs, the Firm works with actors from industry and technology on their cross-border projects, and provides support for foreign investors in the financing of key sectors of French excellence. Virginie Belle becomes a partner in the Firm in 2017, and Olivier Dumas arrives at the beginning of 2018, bringing to the firm his recognized expertise in the Financial Services and Asset Management sector. The Firm also welcomes Virginie Davion as a partner in Tax Law in April 2018.

  • The year of talent

    Upgrading our teams  is a permanent concern and 2019 was no exception to our rule, Camille Malbezin was appointed Counsel.

    We have also been able to attract new talent to consolidate our growing activity in corporate and tax law and strengthen the commercial law/sports law team.

    Our partners are recognized for their expertise in International law firm guides and we are now recognized among the best firms in the French market.
