The innovation in public law
Huglo Lepage Avocats is the first public law firm, opened by Avocats à la Cour. At the time, only Avocats au Conseil d’Etat et à la Cour de cassation were pretending to the practice of public law. Both holding a doctorate in public law, Christian Huglo and Corinne Lepage learned their profession with an Avocat au Conseil d’Etat et à la Cour de cassation for several years. The pratice of public law constitutes a strong element of the firm for years, and many prizes have been awarded to them for this activity.
The firm assists both public or private clients such as : local authorities, private companies, associations or individuals. The firm mainly advises and litigates in the area of environmental law, urban planning law and public business law.
Moreover, the presence of a private law team in the firm allows us to combine the areas of private law at traditional administrative law, areas which are often linked, especially in the field of civil and criminal liability.
