Delcade Avocats & Solicitors

Delcade Avocats & Solicitors

Benoit holds a DEA in business law and a Magistère in business law from the University of Paris-Sorbonne. After starting his career in international law firms, Benoit moved to London in 2005 and became a Solicitor in the UK. In the framework of an international program under the aegis of the British Council, Benoit made decisive encounters and discovered innovative and groundbreaking models. These would later inspire Fabrice and Benoit to create Delcade.

The evolution of the legal profession, the aspirations of the new generation of lawyers, and the desire for entrepreneurship of a growing part of the profession were the triggers for the project. Think Big, Act Small! will be the first motto of Delcade, where collective project and organizational independence are reconciled values. Lawyers find in Delcade a model open to talent, structured as a simplified joint stock company, with a strong collective and synergies between partners, while promoting organizational independence and the freedom of the partner.

Benoit is passionate about innovative models, the inspiration of foreign models and the wealth of inspiration of foreign "disruptive" models. In his private life, Benoit is inspired by art in all its forms, travel, and encounters in everyday life.

Fabrice co-founded DELCADE to create a firm with an innovative structure, enabling it to meet all the needs of its clients in the conduct of their business by bringing together entrepreneurial lawyers who are concerned with balancing their personal and professional lives.

For the past 7 years, Fabrice has been working every day, listening to his associates and partners to respond to the needs of the lawyers and to create an environment at their service, and focused on their personal and professional development. Fabrice advises French and foreign groups, small and medium-sized companies, corporate executives, investment funds, banks, and individuals.

He advises on all tax matters. He holds a Specialization in Tax Law, a DJCE (Diploma of Corporate Counsel) as well as a Master 2 in Business Law and Taxation from the University of Montpellier.

Fabrice is an epicurean, who likes the mountains and the ocean. He has also been an amateur surfer for 20 years, and still enjoys spending time in the water, and manages to get up on the board occasionally.

Sophie is an associate in M&A and corporate law at DELCADE since 2016. She started her career in international law firms, thanks to which she has acquired a broad experience recognized in the profession. She is involved in investment, external growth and capital raising transactions as well as all matters related to corporate and securities law. Also, a member of the New York Bar, Sophie assists her clients in both French and international matters.

Sophie enjoys long walks and hikes in nature but especially with her family during vacations and sunny weekends.

Jean-Philippe is a lawyer at the Paris bar. Business law has led him to take an interest in companies that join forces to optimize the distribution of their products, but also in those that approach independent retailers to duplicate the innovative concepts they have developed. It is about network distribution, such as franchise networks, brand licensing ...

He discovered the legal issues specific to networked distribution during his various collaborations, first within an international law firm, then within niche law firms which allowed him to confront litigation cases before the courts.

He chairs the legal commission of the IREF (Federation of European Franchise and Partnership Networks). His entrepreneurial nature led him to create his own firm before joining DELCADE to bring his experience in distribution law and, a new challenge, to participate in the development of the Lille office.

Jean-Philippe knows how to escape to enjoy the great outdoors. His regular training in running allows him to envisage resourcing treks.

After a university course in law punctuated by a passage in business school, Thomas became a lawyer in 2013. Trained as Counsel in business firms, he caught a taste for litigation after his election as First Secretary of the Conférence du Stage in Bordeaux. He joined DELCADE's Corporate team in 2018, then became Counsel in 2020. He acts for companies of all sizes, from start-ups to multinational groups.

Thomas recognizes himself in the values of DELCADE: entrepreneurial spirit, sense of teamwork and international openness. From the South-West, he works for French and foreign companies, on their external growth operations, fund raising, and in their current legal follow-up. He is very attached to the Atlantic Ocean, where he spends his time whenever the weather permits.
