Mickaël regularly advises on private equity and M&A transactions, intragroup restructurings, financing/refinancing and, more broadly, on corporate, commercial and contract law, as well as on corporate law as applied to real estate promotion/co-promotion and real estate companies, in a French or international context (according to French law).

Mickaël LABIGNE graduated as valedictorian (major) of his Master 2 DJCE promotion at the University of Cergy-Pontoise in 2011, obtained the specialty certificate in corporate law (DJCE) the same year and then obtained his LLM “American Legal Studies” at Vermont Law School in 2012.

After having been admitted to the New-York State Bar in 2013, Mickaël started his carreer in Luxembourg in working in an international law firm (Arendt & Medernach) for 2 years.

Mickaël is a qualified lawyer admitted to the Paris Bar since 2015 and has practiced notably in the law firms Ayache Salama (Paris) and PwC Société d’Avocats.

In addition to his native French, Mickaël is fluent in English.


The legal department of a company or business must be immediately efficient with the human resources at its disposal, even if it means “outsourcing” certain legal services: the Law Firm Labigne Avocat contributes to creating a link between the members of the legal department by providing support in dealing with certain cases that cannot be handled internally.

The legal department of a company or business should no longer be considered as a support function in the eyes of management, but as a lever for creating social value: the Law Firm Labigne Avocat helps create the link between the legal department, other departments (support/operational) and management by helping the legal department to ensure the continuity of its services.

The legal department of a company or business may wish to have the means to move into “project mode” without having to follow up on it – which can quickly become tedious – in order to devote itself to carrying out assignments with greater social added value: the Law Firm Labigne Avocat collaborates with, and helps to create a link between, lawyers from other specialties and other professionals for the purposes of carrying out a specific project for the Client.

Companies, investment funds, enterprises, managers and/or founders, the Law Firm offers you a personalized support in the conception and realization of your projects:


In the company incorporation phase, advice on the choice of the legal structure or corporate form best suited to your project (taking into account, in particular, social and tax considerations) and in governance matters, drafting of the company’s articles of association with a view to its incorporation, then its subsequent registration and, on request, drafting of an agreement to be concluded between the partners or shareholders of your company (shareholders’ agreement).


Assistance in governance & corporate legal secretariat matters during the company’s life : holding of shareholders’ general meetings and company registers, transformation of the company, equity transactions, structuring of intra-group contractual relationships, etc. The Law Firm also assists you in the implementation of corporate governance policies of non-regulated and regulated companies (investment fund management companies, payment institutions, banking institutions, etc.), taking into account the regulatory constraints of these regulated companies.

Assistance in your projects of transfer/acquisition of company shares, external growth operations, intra-group reorganization or capital investment, including in the audit phase ( seller or buyer) in corporate law, commercial law and contract law, possibly in transversality with other lawyers. The Law Firm also assists you in the drafting and negotiation of your commercial lease or business transfer agreement.

Assistance with your fundraising: structuring of the operation, taking into account tax issues and restrictions, through the issuance of securities of any kind, either private or through an “exempted” offer of securities to the public (drafting of a summary information document when the offer benefits from an exemption under the conditions provided for by the applicable French and/or EU regulations).

Assistance in the structuring (tax, social and corporate), negotiation and/or implementation of management packages within the company (BSPCE, free share allocation, BSA, etc.).

Assistance (advice and/or pre-litigation) in all your matters related to a conflict between shareholders or the acquisition of a company in financial difficulty, both amicably and at the bar of the French commercial Court.


Assistance in the drafting and/or negotiation of all your commercial contracts.

Assistance in the drafting and/or negotiation of all your shareholder agreements and related corporate documentation in the context of all real estate promotion and co-promotion operations, as well as in the constitution and monitoring of the corporate life of real estate companies (SCI, SCCV).

Upon request of the Client, or in agreement with the Client, the Law Firm also intervenes alongside French or foreign lawyers specialized in other fields of law (tax law, labor law, intellectual and industrial property law, litigation, etc.) or other professionals (accountants, statutory auditors, investment banks, etc.). This ability to work in “project mode” allows for a collaborative and multidisciplinary one-stop support in the interest of the Client.

Do not hesitate to contact Mickaël to discuss your project, agree on the terms of his intervention and obtain an estimate following the first meeting.
