Nénert et Associés is a Notaire Firm established since 1622 in Paris, originally located in the historical business centre of the City near Palais Brongniart, la Bourse.
In 1982, three years after becoming Maître Robert Gaullier’s partner and in view of increasing the Firm’s activity, Jean-Louis Nénert moved the Office to the new business centre near the “Arc de Triomphe” (8th arrondissement).
In 1991, two new partners, Jean-Christophe Nénert and Patrick Montagne, joined the Firm, which then became NENERT ET ASSOCIES NOTAIRES A PARIS (aka NNA).
The Firm kept growing over the years when Antoine Kroell (1996), Stéphanie Sirot (2001) and Marie-Jean Roque (2007) became partners.
In 2012, Christine Bernard, Anne Gouranton, Sophie Guérin-Tournier, Aurore Nénert and Delphine Zerbib were appointed Notaires, before Jean-Philippe Brunet and Lionel Mauclair in 2015, Tiphaine Simon in 2016 and Théodore Lalieu in 2017.
To this day, the Firm employs around fifty people who assist six partners:

The Notaire is a state appointed legal officer
“The Notaire is the public official responsible for establishing all the contracts to which the parties wish to confer a seal of authenticity, to ensure their signature date, to hold them in trust and to deliver authentic copies of them”, in accordance with the Decree dated 2nd November 1945, Article 1, which sets forth the guidelines of the Notaire’s status.
The strength of the Notaire’s authentic contract
The features of the authentic contract drafted by the Notaire are the following:
– DEFINITE LEGAL DATE: unlike contracts signed under private agreement which need to be registered, its date is evidence on its own.
– PROBATIVE FORCE: the facts therein become unquestionable; therefore it is the strongest mean of evidence listed by the French Civil Code.
– ENFORCEABLE: it is automatically enforceable, just like a court ruling.
Storing the authentic contract
The Notaire has an obligation to keep the authentic contract for one hundred years. Notaires also use digital contracts and online notarial tools.
The cost of the Notaire’s services is State regulated by the decree dated 8th March 1978. The cost includes:
– proportional and fixed fees applicable to most deeds and due diligence (property sales, donations, inheritance…)
– other fees set freely in accordance with the client’s consent.
