Founded in 1996 by Jean-Marc Fédida, the firm has always focused on criminal defence. Drawing on this experience before all correctional and criminal courts, in France and abroad, the firm very quickly invested in the various areas of business life and economic law enforcement.
As these disputes involve protecting the reputations of the accused, the firm has also developed its expertise in press, media and internet law (defamation, insult, violation of the presumption of innocence, image rights, etc.).
The firm therefore offers close, day-to-day support to its clients, including crisis management solutions, as well as the implementation of innovative strategies and frameworks, prior to any litigation, in order to identify legal risks and help corporate entities and their managers adapt to the legal and regulatory obligations to which they are subject.
With a bilingual and dynamic team, Fédida Fabreguettes Associés has invested in the defence of natural and legal persons in transnational and multi-jurisdictional proceedings, involving civil, commercial and criminal litigation.
Experienced in complex legal cases such as advisory or negotiated justice, as well as defence before regulators and independent administrative authorities, the firm offers a unique approach, imbued with this experience of criminal defence and perfect knowledge of our clients, in disputes with major human, economic and financial issues.
Fédida Fabreguettes Associés operates in all matters of repressive law, before all French courts and regulatory authorities, as well as before independent administrative authorities and international courts.
