Jean-Paul Papeix; François Rosse, previously employed by ABPR; Michel Léger of

practices into a new entity.

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
