We stand with you at the heart of the action to address your daily challenges, support your strategy and boost your development.

We do not settle for framework memos, we provide you with concrete tailor-made solutions suited to your issues.

Actively involved in all aspects of our ecosystem.

The legal and social biotope in which companies operate is crucial for business and employment. Employment law must be protective, but it must not act as a brake on hiring. On a daily basis, Capstan’s lawyers witness how labour law complicate the lives of companies, hindering their development and competitiveness in an increasingly international environment.

As a privileged legal partner of companies and an expert in their issues, Capstan takes part in the public debate to defend their interests and shift the balance.
