CSR

 

Our performance may be measured against our financial results and our legal technical skills, but it is unquestionably combined with our civic responsibilities. Performing well also entails giving meaning to our profession and supporting the general interest.

 

Contribution to the legal debate

 

De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés commits itself to the development of Law through its involvement in legal discourse, current legal issues and the training of new lawyers.

 

We are involved in numerous work and research groups aimed at advancing the law. We are active in the Club des Juristes, the French Association of Software Publishers – Tech in France (AFDEL – Tech in France), the Centre d’Etude et de Prospective Stratégique (CEPS), the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), the Artistic and Literary Association International (ALAI), the International Trademark Association (INTA), the Independant Films and Television Alliance (IFTA), the Cloud Computing group within the Association for the Development of Legal IT (ADIJ), the Franco-Russian Academy of Cinema, the Association of Experts in the Law of Trademarks and Models (APRAM) and the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI).

 

Our lawyers publish articles and works, and are interviewed on points of law in legal, economic and financial reviews (French and international), in particular the Revue Lamy Droit de l’Immatériel, Légipresse, Décideurs Stratégie Finance et Droit, Revue Dalloz, Jurisclasseur Lexis Nexis, Revue Banque, Option Droit & Affaires, National Magazine: Canadian Bar Association, Les Echos, etc.

 

They also lecture at several colleges and universities: the Sciences Po Law School, the University of Strasbourg, the University of Nancy II, the Universities of Paris I and Paris XI, the University of Law of Saint Etienne, etc.

 

Support for citizens’ initiatives

 

We have a responsibility to support several causes that we believe in.

 

  • We support diversity and equal opportunity. We have been a partner with the Sciences Po Law School since 2011 and provide a two-year excellence scholarship for a student from that school who is intending to become a business lawyer and is currently studying for a specialized Master’s degree in Economic Law.

 

  • We are committed to equality within companies and the education of girls.
    • We continue to support Toutes à l’École, a humanitarian association in Cambodia that acts to promote a high level of education for underprivileged girls and Young women, in order to help them to become free women and educated mothers.
    • We were a partner of Forum de la Mixité, an opportunity for discussions to promote the mixing of the sexes in businesses, which was held on December 13, 2013 Under the sponsorship of the French Minister of Women’s Rights, Najat Vallaud- Belkacem.
    • We work as part of the European Network for Women in Leadership (WIL) association, which promotes the role of women in business and in the economic and social sphere.

 

  • We support medical research. We participate in the “Walk of Hope” sports event organized by the Vaincre La Mucoviscidose (Beat Cystic Fibrosis) association to raise the funds necessary to pay for research and to provide the human and material resources necessary to care for the sick.

 

  • We work to promote human rights and tolerance. Human rights and tolerance are values that we hold dear. We therefore naturally support Human Rights Watch, a nongovernment organization that has been fighting to protect and defend human rights for the past 30 years in nearly 90 countries.
