BDGS Associés AARPI is one of France’s leading independent law firms, founded in 2013 by four prominent actors in French business law: Antoine Bonnasse, Youssef Djehane, Antoine Gosset-Grainville, and Jean-Emmanuel Skovron.

Since its creation, BDGS Associés has been recognised by key market players for its ability to represent clients in their most strategic and complex transactions.

BDGS Associés was initially formed around a double core activity in mergers and acquisitions and competition and regulatory, and has gradually expanded to include tax, dispute resolution, restructuring and financing practices.

BDGS Associés distinguishes itself by its low associate to partner ratio and the strong involvement of its experienced partners, who benefit from a nuanced understanding of the French economic and regulatory environments, allowing it to offer high-quality, tailored advice focused on adding value for clients. The firm regularly represents its clients in their international transactions and disputes, benefitting from the skills of its lawyers, several of whom are bicultural, multilingual, and/or dual qualified, and the strong personal relationships maintained by its partners with leading firms in key foreign jurisdictions, which allow the firm to work with the most suitable correspondents based on clients’ needs.
