The firm

Sygna Partners was founded in 2004 by Nathalie Rigal and Caroline Edwardes-Ker with a focus on corporate rights.

It has chosen to remain an average structure (20 lawyers). It built strong teams composed of complementary talents and skills, adapted to the customers’ needs. It has also forged partnerships with other consulting professionals (tax advisors, chartered accountants, legal representatives, experts, etc.).

Our philosophy

Sygna's expertise is based on legal knowledge, know-how and experience shared within its teams; supported by a continuous monitoring of legal developments; and combined with regular practice with judges and other professionals. It also contributes to a reflection on the legal profession echoing in its practice and from which two main lessons can be drawn: the lawyer is both an advisor and an auxiliary of justice. The advising mission requires a good understanding of situations and effects, a risk analysis and the capacity of making proposals that will inform and facilitate the clients' decision. As an auxiliary of justice, a lawyer must, through its interventions, deontology and ethics, participate in the regulation of the economic and social life of its clients. He or she must remain open and curious, understand the environment and the context of the situations on which he or she is solicited and share his or her convictions.

"The lawyer is first of all
an adviser"

 
 

Recruitement

Sygna Partners is constantly looking for new talents, particularly student lawyers or trainee lawyers, who are keen on developing their qualities and autonomy by fully integrating into a young, dynamic and human-scale structure.

They will have the opportunity to draft acts in company law, draft conclusions and summonses, follow procedures to prevent corporate difficulties or participate in the development of legal strategies.
