The law and much more

Supporting you with an effective strategy and a tailored approach


Why choose carnot avocats?

Because the sheer diversity of the legal profession and our acquired experience have made us naturally curious and shown us the value of synthesis and supervision.

Because we believe that offering litigation and consultancy services on a separate, fragmented basis is an unnecessary cost for clients, who need strategic support and someone to defend them, all of which we offer.

For 30 years CARNOT AVOCATS’ teams have provided support for civil security organisations with the handling of health and

social issues in their day-to-day work and in the definition of their operational solutions and resources. They also work alongside organisations and stakeholders operating out in the field, to help them define their intervention policies from a legal viewpoint and to defend these, including in the event of disasters affecting their operation and requiring a suitably adapted and attentive response from staff. As a result, CARNOT AVOCATS’ teams have managed hundreds of legal cases which gave both the management teams and the staff the opportunity to express their requirements but also their likes and dislikes with the constant aim of ensuring that everyone’s viewpoint is heard on an individual basis and in a friendly climate

We have worked on the following cases:


    CARNOTS AVOCATS’ teams support a group specialising in the restoration of historical monuments and a group specialising in eco-tourism, both operating at a national level, to assist them with their projects and their dealings with public bodies (co-contractors) and private ones (competitors, subcontractors, suppliers, etc.)


    CARNOT AVOCATS’ teams have helped a listed British company, the UK leader in the distribution of subscriptions for Internet access via satellite, which had no activities in France, to acquire four French companies carrying out similar activities, all of which were in difficulty. On this occasion, the law firm provided advice and information to these successful and fast-growing foreign entrepreneurs concerning the different aspects of the regulations applicable to companies in difficulty. The British company acquired these four businesses in 18 months, and now has a solid base in France from which to continue its growth.


    For the last 30 years, CARNOT AVOCATS’ teams have supported property development projects for a major urban area, with the implementation of policies favouring thoughtful construction, the integration of general and commendable objectives when it comes to respecting historical and architectural heritage, taking full account of the environment, the landscape, and the harmonious integration of the local population in the project through social diversity and inclusiveness. In this capacity, they were involved in designing general regulation solutions and defending these, handling several hundred appeals to ensure compliance with public guidelines.
