FIRON-UGGC: the international alliance of two leading law firms in France and Israel

30 March 2022

Founded in 1993, UGGC Law Firm is one of the leading independent business law firms in France. With offices in four geographical areas (Africa, Europe, Asia and South America), UGGC Law Firm continues its development in the Middle East by establishing an innovative alliance with M. FIRON & Co., a leading Israeli law firm for over 70 years.

The international law firms M. FIRON & CO. and UGGC Law Firm have created an integrated legal platform to facilitate legal services for all investments between Israel and France (and more generally in Europe).


Michel Ponsard, Partner at UGGC Law Firm comments: « This alliance consolidates UGGC’s leading international role and its strategy of agreements based on historical relationships with leading law firms in their area. Israel is a major jurisdiction, with a leading position in health and data technologies, and a growing economy. This new union will offer tailor-made support to clients for their cross-border operations ».



Beyond a regular collaboration agreement between correspondent firms, this alliance presents an innovative structural dimension, notably through the establishment of :

▪ dedicated common teams (structured around a management committee, a development committee and an operational committee),
▪ exchange programmes for lawyers between the two firms.

Zvi Firon, head of the Firon law firm, after announcing the partnership, explained: “ Firon and UGGC are two firms that stand out in their international vision and the quality of service that they each extend to their clients. Therefore, the partnership that we are establishing is a natural step, one that will contribute to our ability to furnish cross-border legal services, crucial in the current climate, to a greater number and a wider variety of clients, thus helping them meet ever greater international challenges.”

The entire FIRON-UGGC team is driven by a single objective: to bring together the best expertise and knowledge of local challenges in order to offer private and public players support tailored to their needs. This alliance capitalizes on more than 450 talents in about 20 international locations.
