With nearly 35 lawyers, including 11 partners, BG2V is a first-choice alternative to major business law firms which all the partners come from. They share common values based on professionalism, trust, commitment and flexibility.

BG2V’s lawyers work both in French and English, and are admitted to practice in France and, for some of them, can also practise in the US (New York Bar). For its cross-border issues (particularly in continental Europe, Anglo-Saxon countries and the Middle East), the firm has also established privileged relationships with foreign firms which share the same standard of technical skills.
The firm’s lawyers are members of international lawyers’ networks such as the American Bar Association (ABA) or the AIJA (International Association of Young Lawyers).
