Mandel – Associes is a leading boutique international law firm whose founding partner has been registered with the Paris Bar since 1973. We have never ceased since then to provide legal advice and expertise to our clients.
Made up of three partners and two of counsel lawyers of different generations, nationalities and cultural background, our firm, thanks to its human size, offers tailored and fluid services, focused on client care and case completions.
Our clients can be sure that they will receive high-quality services due in part because of our specialized focus areas on corporate law, intellectual property law, commercial contract law, international business law and wine and spirits law.
We can thus provide our clients, who are made up of individual entrepreneurs, SMEs, large industrial groups but also public or para-public entities, with sound advice in legal matters that we have been practicing for decades.
The international, and in particular the United States, Japan, South Korea and China, has also always been part of the firm’s DNA.
The members of our team, who are all lawyers admitted to the Paris Bar and who all live in France, are of French, South Korean, Japanese and Chinese nationality. In addition, some of our lawyers hold a double bar (Paris and California, and Paris and Tokyo) while others have studied law or exercised legal functions abroad (in China, Japan and the United States).
With its international culture, its expertise of French law but also of Californian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese law, as well as its multilingualism, Mandel – Associes provides the highest-quality legal representation and advice for complex cross-border transactions and litigations and an impressive track-record.
After having handled French-Japanese and French-US legal cases from the end of the 1970s, we decided, in the mid-2000s, to develop our French-South Korean legal practice, and more recently, our French-Chinese legal practice.
Our firm represents French and foreign clients (especially US, Japanese, South-Korean and Chinese companies) in international and cross-border litigation, business, and governmental matters. Mandel – Associes is counsel to multinational companies, manufacturers, foreign public entities, and entrepreneurs. We represent US, Japanese, South-Korean and Chinese clients doing business in France as well as French concerns doing business in the United States, in Japan, in South Korea and in China.
Our attorneys have vast practical knowledge in specialized international transactions and disputes. Our strong network of foreign lawyers and foreign language capabilities benefit our clients by avoiding expensive coordination delays and cultural misunderstanding.
Finally, when it is necessary, in order to assist our clients, to call on colleagues practicing in areas of expertise other than ours (labour law, tax law, business criminal law, etc.), we are then able to allow our clients to benefit from our various networks of experts, with whom we have established working relationships for decades.
