The firm
The lawyers and experts

The offices

With its exceptional geographic coverage throughout France, FIDAL has been rooted in the heart of the French business environment for 94 years now, actively contributing to its development.  FIDAL has always been on the front line to anticipate changes in the law, now a key part of corporate growth strategies.
Businesses today must operate in an extremely fluctuating environment, due in particular to the globalization of trade, heightened exposure to litigation, and complex and plethoric regulations.
FIDAL continues to adapt to this context so as to ensure that the services we provide our clients come with higher value added.

In March 2014, we moved our Paris teams to a single site based in La Défense. This internal merger reflects our ambition:  to make FIDAL the leading firm in the Paris market, in every one of our practice areas. With nearly 400 lawyers united on a single site, we have an enormous capacity dedicated to serving businesses. Beyond our 9 main departments that cover all the usual areas of business law, we have structured our Paris office around 8 legal service lines and 8 tax service lines, 30 areas of industry expertise and 12 working groups focusing on topical subjects of interest to our clients.

Concurrently, in order to further enhance the resources of our regional teams, we have rethought our model in terms of local service offerings and carried out a regional reform that has culminated in several regroupings. With 12 Regional Divisions, to which a total of 77 offices are attached, we are able to mobilize our experts throughout the entire country, making FIDAL the only firm capable of offering high value added expertise to meet all the needs of regionally-based companies. This proximity is undoubtedly one reason why our clients are so attached to our firm, as is reflected in their loyalty: 37% of our clients have been with us for over 20 years.

For the past several years, serving our clients' international needs has been a major growth path for our firm. We continue to pursue our strategy of forming alliances with firms that share our values of independence, geographic reach, and range of practice areas. Like us, our partners place technical excellence and respect for the client at the heart of their priorities.
Over the past months, we have given a new strategic direction to our policy. International growth is no longer the exclusive domain of large multinationals. Today, the globalization of trade is of vital interest to all businesses. FIDAL has therefore adopted a structure that enables us to deploy the best skills for each project, wherever our clients are located. It comprises 330 lawyers, including 160 in our regional offices, dedicated to assisting all of our clients in their international development projects.

Excellence has a future.
