Marc HenryFTMS Avocats

FTMS Avocats gère une gamme variée de litiges de nature complexe. La pratique du cabinet est une référence pour les grandes banques et les fonds de gestion confrontés à des actions en responsabilité portant sur la commercialisation de leurs produits financiers, impliquant souvent de nombreux demandeurs. Le cabinet traite ainsi plusieurs litiges soulevant des questions juridiques sans précédent et se rapportant à une classe très diversifiée de produits financiers ; comme des produits de défiscalisation ou des investissements dans des actifs solaires et immobiliers. Marc Henry, qui codirige la pratique contentieuse, est particulièrement réputé dans ce domaine, ainsi que Silvestre Tandeau de Marsac qui est impliqué dans un litige à forts enjeux concernant l’application de la règle ne bis in idem. L’équipe traite également des différends commerciaux et industriels complexes, notamment à travers Cédric Fischer qui est le second associé en charge de la pratique contentieuse. L’équipe dispose enfin d’un savoir-faire particulièrement solide dans le traitement des affaires impliquant des aspects de droit international, ainsi que dans la gestion des procédures de médiation et d’arbitrage. Tristan Dupré de Puget est aussi excellent.
