CMS Francis Lefebvre Lyon Avocats assists the Duqueine Group with the reorganisation of its shareholding structure and a capital increase.
To drive the development of the group’s business in a positive global environment for aeronautics, the Duqueine Group increased its capital by eight million euros and decided to join forces with IDIA Capital Investissement and Crédit Agricole Régions Investissement in addition to its longstanding partner, ACE Management.
