Our History


The i2F firm was created in 2000 by Hervé Séveno, initially focused on two main activities: prevention in the field of corporate criminal law, and business protection. It rapidly diversified its activities to help its clients not only with prevention but also with the risk management inherent to their business.

i2F has always been a committed partner for its clients, making available its consultants, its access to top information sources, its network of correspondents on every continent, and its know-how to boost competitiveness.

i2F is recognized today as one of the leading firms in the sector in France.
