AUGUST DEBOUZY
MEANS …

The ability to understand innovation, and to help you structure your project of tomorrow

Innovation and a modern view of legal services has been part of our identity from the very start.

Our client base is very diverse, spanning global digital players and a great number of startups, and reflects our innovation positioning.

This positioning is also reflected in our internal workings as we are not just a law firm, we are legal entrepreneurs.

Our understanding of new technologies (IA, big data, blockchain, machine learning, connected objects, etc.) and of the associated stakes, make our teams your partners of choice on the road to business transformation.

So does our longstanding involvement with and contribution to the French Tech initiative, as illustrated by our Start You Up program to support daring entrepreneurs. The reverse mentoring arrangements under this program are a source of inspiration to our teams.
