The Associates’ Meeting is made up of the Firm’s 44 Partners and is called at least twice a year.
The governance of the Firm has been designed to ensure collegiality and institutionality in the management of day-to-day operations and in the planning of the Firm’s business activities.
The Firm is managed by a Management Committee, which is made up of 5 Partners appointed for a three-year term. The Management Committee appoints an Office Partner for each office of the Firm and, for the term of its mandate, a Conflicts Committee, made up of 3 Partners, who are responsible for ensuring that there are no conflicts when members of the Firm accept to render their services.
The Remuneration Committee, which is responsible for the Associates’ remuneration policy, is appointed by the Associates’ Meeting for a three-year term and is made up of 9 members, 5 of whom are also members of the Management Committee.
The Strategy Committee is made up of the members of the Remuneration Committee and 3 more Partners, appointed by the Management Committee. Their role is to support and advise the Management Committee on key matters that are relevant to the life of the Firm.
