Litigation and arbitration /criminal: The litigation team is supported by a tightly-knit, dynamic team of talented lawyers. The team appears before all the courts, administrative authorities (competition authorities, AMF, CSA, etc.) and arbitration panels. The quality and frequency of its work means that its clients benefit from an attentive ear when dealing with these various bodies. Our experience also gives us access to a solid network of correspondents and experts. The team’s involvement is not limited to monitoring litigation. It also strives to anticipate and prevent disputes. In all cases, the lawyers are driven by the desire to propose the most appropriate solution to the situation encountered, whatever the method of settlement.

The criminal department assists the firm’s clients in all the steps and procedures they need to take to defend themselves or to sue for damages. If our clients are victims of a criminal offence, the firm advises them on a strategy to support the prosecution and, where appropriate, obtain compensation for the loss suffered.

From project design through to implementation and dispute resolution, we provide specific support at every stage, taking into account the legal constraints specific to each discipline and the tax optimisation of the structures put in place.

Employment: The employment team assists French and international companies and their directors in all areas of employment law.
