The firm

Team expansion: founded in 1995, Bersay brings together 40 highly qualified lawyers, with wide-ranging expertise to address the legal needs of businesses. 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. The firm has experienced significant growth thanks to the sustained trust of its clients, who have built its reputation for excellence, thereby enabling it to attract new clients. 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. This approach has contributed directly to the excellent growth the firm has experienced these last few years. With over 20 years of experience, Bersay has advised some of the world’s leading multinational companies. Lawyers working at Bersay either began their career at the firm or joined the firm having worked previously in prestigious large international or French firms. All of them are at least bilingual (French and English). Some of them are admitted to practice in foreign jurisdictions. All of the lawyers of Bersay & Associés work in French and in English and most of them work in at least a third language (Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Hebrew).
