Vigo, law firm
The history of VIGO law firm began in the late 80’s… Emmanuel Daoud was then an associate with the Batonnier Jean-René Farhouat and Mario Stasi, and later became a partner. Christine Carpentier and Julie Ferrari followed the same path, first as associates and then as partners. All three founded VIGO in 2009. Also leaving Stasi & Associés, Julien Cheval and Emmanuel Mercinier joined them. César Ghrénassia quickly joined them as an associate and then as a partner.
ViGO immediately appears to be a major player in the fields of business criminal law and civil and commercial litigation. If its sharp legal expertise and perfect knowledge of its clients’ economic constraints explains its success, it is also rooted in a proven legal practice and culture of ethics.
In addition to its technical expertise, VIGO is characterised by its responsiveness and its ability to anticipate identified or emerging risks.
While VIGO is primarily on the lead in business criminal law, where personal, economic and media issues are major, as a specialist in the legal environment of the company it also strives to master all aspects of it : commercial and contractual law, labour law, new technology law, collective proceedings, etc. VIGO intervenes upstream of any litigation and develops a particular expertise in the field of risk prevention in companies.
Today, VIGO is comprised of eighteen lawyers, each of whom specialises in a particular area of liability law.
Motivated by deep and strong humanist convictions, the firm’s lawyers defend pro bono poor people, associations or NGOs and make VIGO a pioneering law firm in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility. This lasting and shared commitment actively contributes to the definition of the “VIGO identity”.
VIGO : “excellence and ethics at the service of judicial efficiency, enlightened by an ideal of justice.”
