Public law

For thirty years, Cornet Vincent Ségurel has developed a significant practice in the area of public law to which a team of 17 lawyers, including 4 partners, is now dedicated. In this area, Cornet Vincent Ségurel is among the leading French firms.


Our involvement covers all of the various areas of public law and is also resolutely practical.

Each lawyer has solid training and significant experience in relevant areas of expertise.

All of the partners and associates provide both advisory and litigation services, as we believe that sound advice cannot be provided without practical exposure to administrative litigation.

We work with a broad array of public law players: local governmental authorities and groupings of them, local government-controlled companies, local mixed economy companies, local government entities, public sector economic interest groupings, chambers of commerce and industry, urbanisation developers , etc.

We also advise private players in connection with their projects relating to the public sector.

Above and beyond management of our clients’ current needs, we implement their specific projects, the complexity of which requires innovation, determination and an overall view of the project (contractual and/or structural changes of management techniques of public services, financing of public equipment, major development projects, creation of local government companies, etc.).

We work on a daily basis with other teams of the firm and outside, independent consultants and independent advisors specialised in the technical and financial areas involved, in order to provide the ever broader services required by our clients.

Our practice involves the following areas :
