The office

Background history – A few key facts

WARGNY KATZ grew from the partnership between Hubert WARGNY and Alain KATZ in 1999 and has since built its reputation based on its involvement in most of the major investment, outsourcing, property development or financing transactions of the key operators in the service industry property market.

WARGNY KATZ subsequently reinforced its strategic position with respect to major foreign investment funds, French property companies or further still to key banking institutions, by adding 5 new partners since 2005.

With the help of the skills of its 50 or so associates, who all share the firm’s common values, WARGNY KATZ has been able to continue its development, with the appointment since 2016 of 6 notaries with employee status.

In October 2016, WARGNY KATZ re-located to its new offices in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, to 9 avenue Matignon, with a view to improving the quality of service to its clients.
