Velvet Avocats is a law firm whose lawyers are specialized in M&A law and tax law, and more broadly in companies and entrepreneurs’ legal and tax issues.

Our M&A/Tax lawyers provide personalized solutions to each client: international companies, funds, start-up and small companies, founders, executives and managers, family-owned companies, etc.

In 2013, Antoine Fouter (M&A lawyer) and Frédéric Gérard (tax lawyer) created an inter-professional think tank dedicated to issues faced by small to mid-sized companies. In working together, they found out they shared the same high standards and values in providing the best solutions to their clients, the same taste for modern and creative solutions, the same sense of high-level service, and the same attachment to companies and entrepreneurs.

Velvet Avocats was born from this observation and the ambition of its founders to share all of these values within a new law firm.
