Our firm

One

The alliance of two recognised firms in the field of employment and labour law – MGG Legal and Voltaire Avocats – led to the creation of MGG Voltaire: the synergies and strength of a versatile and multilingual team, with complementary areas of expertise.

MGG Voltaire is …

  • A natural and logical alliance, between two firms that have been working together for more than 10 years.
  • A merger of two teams, with similar working methods and complementary expertise.
  • Shared knowledge and resources.

But above all…

The desire to create a shared destiny, in keeping with the principles underpinning the success of Voltaire Avocats and MGG Legal.

Our values

Beyond precision and creativity

MGG Voltaire is founded on strong values: high technicality, a constant striving for excellence, entrepreneurial spirit and versatility.

Our lawyers all possess the ability to resolve complex situations in the most difficult contexts as well as being client-focused (ability to listen, candour, clarity and simplicity) and committed to finding innovative solutions.

Our approach

A sustainable firm

MGG Voltaire gives meaning to the practice of the legal profession, by implementing numerous CSR initiatives.

MGG Voltaire implements a true environmental policy devised with its employees. In addition to a more environmentally-friendly layout of our premises, the desire to transition in the future to a paperless firm and the optimisation of the firm’s computer and electronic equipment, we have redesigned how the various tools of our day-to-day work are used.

Because these initiatives can only be effective if there is genuine awareness and commitment on the part of the whole team, MGG Voltaire is fostering a real change in behaviour within the firm, but also outside the firm, including by limiting travel-related pollution.

Controlled travel

  • Environmentally-friendly means of transport.
  • Using our local offices (or, if necessary, our network of correspondents) to handle litigation cases whenever possible.
  • Web conferences in order to limit travelling to meetings outside the firm’s offices.
  •  Training by audioconference.

Optimised work tools

  • Energy Star-labelled computer equipment.
  • Reduced use of paper and colour printing.
  • Shared printers and recycling of cartridges.

Close to our clients

MGG Voltaire meets the needs of its clients, whether they are based in France or abroad. Our lawyers’ mastery of foreign languages and our participation in the ELLINT network testify every day to the firm’s international dimension.

With offices in Paris, Lyon and Lille, the firm can help local or foreign players with setting up and with their development in France thanks to its knowledge of territories and a multi-sector approach.

One of MGG Voltaire’s key strengths is its ability to combine expertise in French employment and labour law with a keen understanding of the legal cultures of other countries.

Thanks to its membership of the international ELLINT network, comprising 200 lawyers in 15 different countries, combined with its proficiency in three foreign languages (English, German and Spanish), MGG Voltaire is the preferred partner of companies both French (for their mobility or international deployment projects) and foreign (for setting up in France and the management of their French subsidiary or branch).

Invest in France !

MGG Voltaire regularly advises foreign groups wishing to invest in France. From tax issues and corporate law, human resources, accounting problems, payroll and immigration to the drafting of employment contracts, MGG Voltaire’s lawyers have formed a dedicated team (consisting of accountants, corporate lawyers and payroll specialists) capable of providing a turnkey service to foreign investors. We take care of all the formalities so that our clients can focus on the commercial development of their business.

German Desk

An international outlook is at the heart of MGG Voltaire’s practice, with Germany occupying a leading position. Several lawyers are familiar with German legal culture and can advise German groups and Mittelstand companies not only on the day-to-day management of their subsidiary in France, but also in connection with the implementation of their large-scale projects. Thanks to its understanding of the concerns of these German-speaking clients, MGG Voltaire can provide them with effective and pertinent advice.
