We offer a range of services in the following areas of business law: Corporate, M&A, Competition, Contracts, Employment law, Intellectual Property, Technology law, Arbitration and Mediation, and of course litigation.
Legal counselling and litigation services are intrinsically linked and both are an essential part of our practice, which strives to deliver solutions to our clients, in transactions as well as in dispute resolution.
Experienced and entrepreneurial, we focus on combining "bespoke" advice and proximity to our clients.
All lawyers in the Firm are admitted to the Paris Bar as advocates and have first-hand litigation experience.
Our clients include both listed and private companies, multinational corporations, and governmental agencies.
If the matter is multi-jurisdictional, we work in close collaboration with our network of tested foreign correspondents (e.g. in Switzerland, Italy, Poland, Turkey and Tunisia), delivering to our clients a coordinated, coherent, and cost-effective approach.
Our commitment to service is based on the following values: knowledge of our clients' business, proximity, responsiveness, and reliability.
“The world has no other choice between force and law: if civilization wants to survive, it has to choose the force of law.” (Dwight D. Eisenhower)
Arbitation is the preferred way of resolving commercial and investment international disputes, because the parties are generally able to select the arbitrator(s), and because the award which will eventually be issued is binding upon the parties and can be enforced in most countries much more readily than a foreign judgement.
Mediation by contrast is not binding and can be terminated at any point by one party. It is however more and more often used in the commercial world because it is not costly, is fast and if handled by an experienced mediator will result in 75% of cases, in a settlement agreement.
National Courts tend to favour mediation and arbitration as helpful tools to solve disputes without having to go to the trial stage.
