Why does Philippe & Partners do what it does? Philippe & Partners is convinced that innovation needs to be prioritised as a driver of progress. What it does is inspired by the root value guiding any law firm’s social role: making the clients’ projects a success.

How does it work? Its foremost priority is to understand the client and what they want. In doing so, it does not see the role of a law firm as solely applying legal rules and regulations, but also as a source of practical solutions in compliance with the law and helping clients achieve their goals. Many of its staff have spent time working in companies, making it easier for them to understand how their customers ‘tick’.

Anticipating legal developments is a further stepping stone contributing to the long-term viability of any legal solution. This is why the firm is not only made up of specialist lawyers, but also maintains very close links with the academic world, with a number of lawyers teaching at major universities across Europe.

Philippe & Partners operates in several countries and all of its lawyers speak several languages. Over the years, it has developed privileged partnerships with international legal networks, who share its own humanist values. This set-up allows the firm to support client projects throughout the world. Philippe & Partners is a completely independent firm, not too large to lose human touch, and guided by top-notch professionalism. While taking care to maintain a healthy financial footing, the firm is able to offer an attractive level of fees.

What does it offer? Philippe & Partners provides an all-round high-quality service in the majority of legal fields. Its in-depth specialised knowledge of law, accompanied by attention to detail, both spiced with a creative approach and a touch of audacity, allow the firm to offer clients what it calls ‘fine art in legal practice’.

By developing specialised teams for each practice area, Philippe & Partners offers tailor-made solutions (eg outsourcing programmes) to national and international companies, public authorities, non-profit organisations and private persons in all main business areas.

Areas of practice: Philippe & Partners is convinced that the knowing the person who asks the question is as important as knowing the answer to the question. That’s the reason why the firm focuses on different industries: insurance; banking and finance; energy; inventors; gambling; tax and estate planning
