10 rue de Castiglione – Paris 1er

Our office has long track record and is working with a unique tradition

CASTIGLIONE NOTAIRES grew out the merger between the practices of CHAMPETIER de RIBES and PASTEAU in 1975, which date back to 1641 (Maître Jean CHAUSSIERE) and 1580 (Maître Nicolas PRIVET) respectively.

In 1832 the CHAMPETIER de RIBES practice moved into the current address at 10 rue de Castiglione, a short distance from Place Vendôme.


Castiglione Notaires holds a century of archives covering around 1400 linear (shelf) meters. Digitisation has been used to make some of them accessible on the Practice’s intranet.

The Practice’s notarised documents reflect the cultural and political history of our country and include, among others, deeds bearing the signatures of Corneille and Racine and even the Suez and Panama Canal statutes.
