Dominique Trechot


Dominique Tréchot is a Founding Partner of Carmin Finance. His image is that of a inveterate deal-maker. Who favors building, and feeding, trustful dialogs. Who is at ease in difficult situations, because of his long experience, and because of his past as a tax lawyer. Straightforward and creative in negotiations, he appreciates multicultural situations (being half Irish).


Dominique began his career as a tax lawyer within the Francis Lefebvre Law Office in Paris, where he advised the largest French and Foreign groups for several years. He also has, for five years, held a Chair of Tax Law in the better-known French Business School : HEC.

He is well known within the French community of Private Equity firms, and Family Offices.

He has personally initiated, led, negotiated and concluded more than 250 transactions. Half of which involved a foreign European counterpart. His daily contacts are ; the managers, the shareholders, of smidcaps, as well as the entities involved in their financing, through debt and “equity capital”.
