The COFFRA Group and EXAFI pool their expertise

COFFRA, the multidisciplinary specialist in the Franco-German business environment, and EXAFI, a firm particularly well known for its expertise in corporate restructuring, have decided to join forces.

On September 26, 2019, EXAFI’s three partners and their 15 employees joined the personnel of the COFFRA Group, creating an expanded team of experts comprised of 170 employees, all based in Paris, and generating aggregate turnover of approximately €22 million.

Thierry Duval, who founded EXAFI along with Carine Guyetant, emphasized that “this new group will enable us to offer our clients a much broader range of services with a truly international dimension.” For Carine Guyetant, this new structure will also strengthen the Group’s ability to accompany distressed companies: “Together with COFFRA, we will now be able to pursue much more complex restructuring projects by expanding our services to include, in particular, the social aspects of these initiatives.”

For Kurt Schlotthauer, founder and Chairman of COFFRA, this merger represents a further major step in the Group’s development. Christoph Schlotthauer, Managing Partner of COFFRA, said: “This corporate tie-up with EXAFI, the first of its kind for COFFRA which, until now, has focused on organic growth, will allow us to further diversify our range of services. We want to show our clients that we are now in a position to satisfy their different expectations even more fully than before.”


Created in 1985, COFFRA, Compagnie Fiduciaire Franco-Allemande, is an audit, accounting and legal services firm specializing in welcoming international investors in France. COFFRA currently serves more than 900 clients in all sectors of activity.
