’ six founding partners are Jean-Pierre Allouch; Vincent Baillot;
Jean-Paul Papeix; François Rosse, previously employed by ABPR; Michel Léger of

practices into a new entity.

The firm, which counts 16 partners and 267 staff, has four offices in the

expected from the incoming referrals generated by the BDO International network,
as well as major new clients in the French market, an active merger policy and
high level recruitment prospects.

to clients’ needs for more choice and to the demand by regulators for greater
competition.
