Its practice covers all of the main areas of business activity, in an advisory capacity as well as in litigation and arbitration, and in both national and international matters.

Its satisfied small and mid-sized clients have referred it to some of the world’s most prestigious multinational corporations. Driven by a desire to remain constantly innovative, effective and competitive, Bersay became the first Paris firm to be certified ISO 9001 in 1998.
