  • A partnership “SC”;
  • A Monaco-based public limited company “SAM”;
  • A limited liability company “SARL”
  • A general partnership “SNC”.

In such cases, we assist during the formation of the company, specifically when applying for authorisation (mandatory when forming certain companies).

We also assist during the life of the companies and to this end for several areas:

  • Change in management;
  • Change of partners (transfer of company shares or interests);
  • Change in activity;
  • Cessation of activity ;
  • Dissolution.

Our assistance in corporate law, is not limited only to the above since for the organisations that we manage, we can offer to be the fiscal representative of your company in France if it has links in France (for example : a Monaco-based SCP owning real estate in France).


In that capacity, we are able to establish each year the various French tax declarations incumbent on your organisation provided that it has a link with France obliging the latter to file a tax return in France. (for example, declarations: declaration on the market value of the property held within your entity, declaration No. 2065 on corporation tax, declaration No. 2072 concerning companies not subject to corporation tax etc.).

  • We highly recommened the sevices of Mtre Kergueno. We had a situation which was highly stressful to us and we found that his services were both highly professional and very reassuring. He was helpful, polite and to the point. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these services to any English speaking or Foreign Clients worried about the intricacies of French property law.

  • I would like to thank Benjamin Kergueno, for his excellent service and very helpful advice. I was looking for an English speaking lawyer to advise me on French property law, both his knowledge of French law and his level of English were outstanding, and I would recommend his services to anyone looking for legal assistance in France.

  • Mtre Kergueno proved to be a true voice of reason and great judgement throughout a stressful time for me. At every point I felt confident in his knowledge, and his approach to matters was calm and professional. During a period when setting up a business in a foreign country can be daunting, Mtre Kergueno took much of the pressure away from me. I will continue to use Mtre Kergueno in the future.

  • We would definitely recommend Benjamin to anyone needing legal assistance. We were in urgent need of a lawyer to assist us with documentation from our home country. Not only was Benjamin very quick to reply to our initial email enquiry but he was able to see us at short notice which was great as we had a very tight deadline to meet. Benjamin was incredibly helpful, and very patient with us (there were a lot of documents). His English is also fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to use him again should the need arise.
