Cagnat & Associés

The Practice

C&A is an Auditing and Chartered Accounting Firm founded by Joseph Cagnat at the beginning of the twentieth century. Our firm has two partners, one of whom is Pierre Mercadal & Associates, Auditors. C&A is a relatively small Practice where the partners retain close operational involvement in all files. We select our clients with care, and our stable, highly qualified and pro-active staff strive to provide them with a personalised and efficient service.
This professional ethos has allowed us to constitute a portfolio of longstanding, quality clients, while developing a solid reputation both in auditing and chartered accounting. We have expert knowledge of the needs and obligations of publicly traded companies, and act on behalf of our clients both in France and abroad. Owing to the nature and size of our clients, we have organised the Practice into two departments: Auditing and Chartered Accounting.

All work is carried out under the supervision and responsibility of one of the partners.

Pierre Mercadal
