Strategy Behind Success

The core target of the firm is the large groups, multinationals, foreign governments and individuals with high profiles like actors, sportspeople, celebrities from different backgrounds. With regard to companies of international dimension, the firm act as a growth lever, in particular by outsourced support in the management of their human resources, assistance in the resolution of commercial disputes they encounter, the provision of an economic intelligence that allows them to stick to the current news and thus adapt the strategies that GFK Conseils-Juridis develop for them.

For all the foreign government projects, the firm is developing new governance strategies and works as a constitutional advisor and tactical support. One of the greatest pride stems from certain texts that the firm has helped in writing, in order to bring out innovative entrepreneurial or ecological protection schemes, which had not been initiated until then.

The Innovative Projects

When we ask to Romain Gerardin-Fresse to talk about the innovative projects, he recalls two recent projects. In one project, he accompanied the Prime Minister of the Republic of Djibouti H.E. Abdoulkader Kamil Mohamed in the context of the attractiveness that the Djiboutian state wishes to develop in terms of banking establishments. The Republic of Djibouti instituted in 2011, a banking law that encourages the installation on its territory of banking establishments and financial companies by the establishment of a regulatory and normative framework strict and precise, which benefits from the credibility offered by a member country of the OECD. The firm, therefore, is developing this incentive in such a way as to explain to the various investment funds and financial companies that there is in Djibouti the emergence of a real financial center, strong, secure and destined to become a major epicenter of African and international finance.

This project is all the more interesting as the installation of these institutions on Djiboutian territory will make it possible to finance the development of a digital-free zone, in the province of Obock, which will make Djibouti the leader of Africa in digital, by setting up a Data Center, a digital university, and a free zone promoting the establishment of companies linked to the digital economy.

The second innovative project is a French digital company called UNIRIS. UNIRIS has developed a secure and tamper-proof technology that allows any key password or medium to be replaced as securely as a bank card chip by reading digital blood networks. The client also developed a principle of "Smart Contracts", which facilitates, verify and executes the negotiation or execution of a contract, completely autonomously. They can be triggered alone or from internal events such as transaction dates where consensus is a cross of information. At the same time, their client wished to develop a cryptocurrency trading platform by having launched its own Tokens, the UCOs. Mr. Romain says, “I am convinced, moreover, that India will soon forge a lasting partnership with UNIRIS.”

Moving Progressively Ahead

 As the world is changing, Mr. Romain says, “Social and environmental paradigms are radically different today and are evolving at an impressive pace.

We must constantly be on alert, to the effect of not remaining reactive and to be able to deploy a proactive approach.

Proactive strategy results from the use of analyses to determine the best option to prevent a problem. During the implementation of this new strategy, continuous monitoring of progress is carried out and the provisions are adjusted accordingly to improve what does not achieve the expected result. On the contrary, the reactive approach amounts to dealing with problems in real-time, without prior analysis or planning, with results determined downstream of the proposal. The paradox arises from the fact that if a crisis occurs and we have to deal with the problems that result from it, it is because we did not anticipate or poorly. We must therefore be reactive at the beginning of crisis management, before being proactive.”

GFK Conseils-Juridis has opened a secondary law firm in Singapore and aims to strengthen its presence in Africa and Asia. They look forward to building local ties in destinations where they become a global solution to all legal and strategic problems.
