Social and Solidarity Economy

The Social and Solidarity Economy addresses important issues at stake in our society. It places human beings at the heart of the debates and is based on the principles of solidarity and responsibility that are important to us.

We have seen the development of this economy over several decades, which gives us a detailed understanding of the particularities of each of the organizations that compose it: associations, large federations of associations, Livre II or Livre III mutual insurance companies, foundations, endowment funds, trade unions, cooperatives, collective interest cooperative societies (SCIC), etc.

We advise you in your restructuring operations: mergers, demergers, creation of subsidiaries, pooling of resources, and formation of groups.

We assist you with all your legal issues, in particular statutory reforms, and recognition of public utility or conflicts between managers.

We have also developed corporate expertise for complementary health insurance organizations, Livre II mutual insurance companies, mutual insurance companies and provident institutions.

We have particular expertise in the health, social and medico-social, youth and popular education sectors.
