Barré & Associés and Moisand Boutin & Associés (MBA) join forces and create YARDS


Paris – February 3, 2022 – MBA (Moisand Boutin & Associés), a business law firm dedicated to transactions (M&A, Private Equity), corporate and transactional taxation, employment law, commercial litigation, and Barré & Associés, a business law firm specialising in the international and wealth taxation of private clients and family businesses, are joining forces to create YARDS, a new generation business law firm.

YARDS, a firm on a human scale, supportive and dedicated, committed to its clients and business partners

The combination of skills allows us to broaden our field of expertise, covering five major complementary practices in a national and international context: M&A/Private Equity, Corporate Tax, Private Clients, Labour Law and Business Litigation.

YARDS draws its strength and professional qualities from its human dimension, a value that is clearly asserted towards its clients and its teams.

YARDS is also characterised by an in-depth and entrepreneurial knowledge of its clients’ businesses. With a global approach to issues, YARDS is a committed and creative player, aiming for a tailor-made and pragmatic service.

“The human dimension and proximity are key values of the firm. Our priority is to establish close ties with our clients. Our teams are very supportive. The spirit of the firm is excellent. This is objectively reflected in the relationship with our clients”, comments Igor Doumenc, Partner (M&A/Private Equity).

YARDS, a firm of dealmakers

YARDS is an independent firm of dealmakers with recognised experience advising leading private equity funds, unicorns, tech companies, as well as large international groups, families and family businesses.

The experience and complementarity of its lawyers give YARDS the ability to simplify the most complex issues and to provide innovative and effective solutions. YARDS has a global vision of the situations, each subject being approached from several perspectives.

“YARDS is different due to its strong involvement and real transversal skills, which allow it to have complete control over the cases, as well as a precise knowledge of the businesses. Our clients appreciate and recognise this commitment, which allows us to build long-term relationships with them”, says Jérôme Barré, Partner (private clients and family businesses).

Thanks to a selected and proven network, YARDS has the necessary means to intervene all over the world. YARDS has a panel of “good friends” in each jurisdiction, which gives it a wide range of options to identify appropriate local partners, who fit easily and efficiently into the team.

Yarder, better, stronger

YARDS makes no secret of its ambitions, particularly in terms of growth. While maintaining a human scale, YARDS has been designed to easily welcome new talents and new skills to complete its range of action.

“Yarder, better, stronger is our slogan! Yarder: we offer an independent business law firm that is even more open to the world. Better: our originality is based on our complementarities and the excellence of our tailor-made advice. Stronger: our teams are collectively committed to supporting our clients as closely as possible to their needs”, concludes Dorothée Traverse, Partner (corporate and transactional tax).
