Jeantet asserts its “Defence and Security” expertise for Sovereign Industries
In a geopolitical context marked by mounting tension, the strategic sectors of security, defence and sovereign industries such as health and telecommunications, are paramount as governments take on their duty of increased vigilance. Jeantet, an independent business law firm based in France, has developed its own expertise team to support these strategic sectors. Its specialist lawyers have in-depth knowledge of the military world and sovereignty issues and are very familiar with the area of economic intelligence and the specific aspects of such cases including special authorisations. Jeantet supports the major players and leaders of its target sectors – aviation, naval, nuclear, new technologies & digital, energy, telecommunications & cyber, and health – by adopting an approach that’s adapted to the key issues and quality aspects of international groups, subcontractors and high-potential companies, and particularly developers of dual technologies
for the civil and military sector.
Jeantet advises its clients through all of their major operations and projects (acquisitions, partnerships and joint ventures, tenders and administrative procedures, business agreements, dispute resolution) in all aspects of business law (corporate law and M&A, intellectual property, competition and tendering, public law and public procurement, financing law, labour law, compliance and dispute management). The firm has structured its “Defence and Security” expertise through a cross-disciplinary team that draws on the firm’s key skills. The team includes managing partner Karl Hepp de Sevelinges, partners Xavier Pernot, Thomas Picot and Vincent Netter, and counsel Julia Bombardier and Adrien Fourmon.
The expert team is coordinated by Thomas Picot (IHEDN-SN67, reserve officer, teacher at the War School) and Xavier Pernot (founder and president of the IHEDN youth association).
In this regard, Xavier Pernot explained: “Jeantet, as an independent and international firm, has the know-how to support all players in this essential sector in France, Europe and Africa in particular, with the required level of confidentiality and expertise”.
Thomas Picot added: “Players in the defence and security sector are faced with a legal and regulatory framework, a competitive nvironment and very specific constraints. Our objective is to provide them with seamless support and solutions with total independence, while keeping these key needs in mind”.
