Advice and assistance to foreign individuals and companies in France and to French individuals and companies abroad

Assistance in the resolution of complex disputes involving with parties located in different countries

01 Hand in hand– with our clients

Our clients are French and foreign individuals, entrepreneurs, craftsmen, small and medium entities, as well as bigger companies in search of a different relationship than the one they have experienced with large law firms.

In one word: they pass on; their knowledge, their social skills and their passion.


They build kitchens, wooden terraces, tailor-made windows, buildings; they decorate shops, restaurants and unusual places; they create cocktails; they dance and play, sculpt and paint; they advise companies in their marketing, design and financial strategies; they nurse; they train and teach.

The common denominator between our clients and Luzellance is no doubt that of transmission.

And what do we do ?

We identify our clients’ goals in order to define our objectives. We accompany them at each stage and compose the legal and fiscal score of their activities.

Because law is a living language that everybody does not master, we translate, explain, reformulate and advise.

We help each of our clients, foreign, French or francophone, to understand how our legal system functions.

More generally, we are present in the different stages of life. We forge a real partnership which ambition is to anticipate rather than to endure.

In short, Luzellance is a daily companion to its clients.

02 Hand in Hand –with our colleagues

Cross boarder opening was a natural foundation stone in the creation of Luzellance. The relation to the other, across the border, is a richness. It constantly reminds us that elsewhere, things are done differently. Comprehending these differences is key to our efficient assistance to our foreign clients in France and to our French clients abroad.

With that in mind, we have developed a network of colleagues in different countries, which is based on trust and shared consciousness of such richness.

Luzellance has been a member of AIJA (Association Internationale de Jeunes Avocats), for a number of years, in which we have developed a number of high quality relations.

Conscious of the importance to promote our ties in order to offer the best assistance possible to our clients with international projects, we co-founded the ACUTA international alliance. Our partners are in London, Rome, Turin, Milan, Boston, Barcelona and Dublin.

03 Hand in hand – within the firm,

We are eager to share and to pass on. With our associates and our trainees, we invest ourselves fully in order to contribute to their training and empowerment. We encourage the development of their projects, of their network and of their clientele, because we are convinced that what is a source of experience and self-fulfilment for them naturally benefits to all. Dialogue and mutual respect are the necessary cornerstones of this construction.

Luzellance is not a fixed concept and we remain curious of our next destinations, which are shaped thanks to and with those who join us.
