2009, the foundation
The history of the VIGO law firm began at the end of the 80’s. Emmanuel Daoud was then an associate of the Bâtonniers Jean-René Farthouat and Mario Stasi, of which he then became partner.
Christine Carpentier and Julie Ferrari followed the same path, first as associates and then as partners of the latter. All three founded VIGO in 2009.
Also leaving Stasi & Associés, Julien Cheval and Emmanuel Mercinier joined them, soon followed by César Ghrénassia.
