The lecocqassociate group was established in Geneva in 2007 by the firm’s Managing Partner, Mr Dominique R. Lecocq. Dominique’s extensive international experience in finance regulation and structuring led him to institute the Geneva office as a boutique law firm, specialising in the niche areas of regulatory banking and corporate finance. In response to the firm’s growing client base and the complexity of client affairs, the Malta office was established in 2010 as a regulatory advisory practice. The expansion continued with two offices in Dubai – the first in the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) in 2013 and, subsequently, a structuring and compliance advisory practice in the Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC). In 2018, lecocqassociate opened an Abu Dhabi office as a legal consultancy incorporated in the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM).
Today, the group is heavily involved in private equity and structuring of direct deals for Ultra High Net Worth Individuals and families across Europe and the Middle East (both sell side and buy side). Due to the influx of requests from Africa, the group is working on establishing an office in Rwanda.
