Our story

The lecocqassociate group was established in Geneva in 2007 by the firm’s Managing Partner, Mr. Dominique R. Lecocq. Dominique’s extensive international legal experience in finance regulation and structuring led him to institute the Geneva office as a boutique law firm specialising in the niche areas of regulatory banking and corporate finance. As a response to the firm’s growing client base and the complexity of client affairs the Malta office was established in 2010 as a regulatory advisory practice. The expansion continued with two offices in Dubai – the first in the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) in 2013 and subsequently a structuring and compliance advisory practice in the Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC). In 2018, lecocqassociate opened an Abu Dhabi office as a legal consultancy incorporated in the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM).

The success and dynamic development of the group saw the appointment of Ms. Hooriya Qazal Rajput as Managing Partner in 2015 and Ms. Lucile Cesareo-Hostettler as Partner in 2022.
