Laurent & Charras

The CHARRAS firm was created in the industrial city of Saint-Etienne in 1920 to meet the needs of the local economic fabric and in particular of MANUFRANCE.

In a century, the firm has become a major player in industrial property in France, by merging with a Lyon structure, Cabinet LAURENT, to become LAURENT & CHARRAS, then by choosing to set up in Alsace with the opening of the offices. from Strasbourg and Mulhouse.

The firm's growth has taken place without ever renouncing its identity, which is to be located in the heart of two of the most dynamic regions of Europe, at the service of innovative companies.

Our knowledge of the economic fabric allows us to support managers and entrepreneurs as closely as possible and to be by their side in the defense of their rights.

This regional establishment went hand in hand with the international development of the firm, which has reliable relays in the main countries of the world and which today also works for major American, Chinese, Korean and Japanese companies.

We constantly keep this network alive through our travels and control the quality of our partners' services.

This know-how, combined with a personalized approach to industrial property issues, has led us to work for reputable research centers, dedicated services for high-tech companies and some of the most innovative start-ups.

We do our job with commitment and passion, rigor and consistency.

We are particularly proud, almost a century after the founding of our firm to serve MANUFRANCE, to be the partners of the International Design Biennale of Saint-Étienne which is held in the deeply renovated and transformed premises of the "MANU" .

We see this as proof that we have been able to transform ourselves at the same time as the territories in which we are established, to always be as close as possible to their economy.
