Lmt Avocats > Firm Profile
The firm: Lmt Avocats is an independent business law firm that was founded in 1991 and employs 45 lawyers and staff, led by ten partners. Based in Paris, it is a member of the PLG International Lawyers network and the INBLF network.
The combined skills and experience of the firm’s lawyers in various areas of business law, the international culture brought to the firm by its partners and their knowledge of the business environment ensure that Lmt Avocats meets its clients’ expectations in various fields of business law. The firm provides day-to-day legal advice and conducts judicial and arbitral litigation, benefiting from an integrated organisational structure that guarantees high-quality professional services. Client satisfaction is ensured through the selection of working teams tailored to each case, led by partners who remain heavily involved at all stages, and by maintaining personal contact between clients and the firm’s lawyers.
Lmt Avocats places a heavy emphasis on its international expertise, as shown by its clientele, which includes many foreign (including Anglo-Saxon and German) groups. The training and experience of the firm’s lawyers, the varying cultural backgrounds of its staff, its PLG and INBLF memberships and its numerous contacts abroad (especially in the US) further highlight the firm’s knowledge of international business.
Lmt Avocats has extensive international experience and 60% of its clients are foreign companies or the French subsidiaries of foreign groups. The firm’s lawyers have the necessary linguistic skills and background for dealing with foreign contacts on a daily basis. This expertise, alongside a dedicated in-house translation service, ensures that the firm is able to counsel foreign clients efficiently. In particular, the firm is perfectly suited to advising businesses with French/German interests, and Northern American and European groups doing business in France.
Areas of practice: The firm’s lawyers regard the law as their calling and are as satisfied by the successful outcome of a transaction or case as their clients. They view such successes as the fruit of their legal skills, experience and a shared passion for analysing, reasoning, developing strategies, setting up and implementing projects, arguing and (sometimes) fighting for clients’ rights or demands.
Lmt Avocats treats every case as unique and its lawyers pay close attention to clients’ needs. The firm’s lawyers endeavour to understand clients’ specific requirements and adapt their advice accordingly, using the imagination and creativity that is expected of them and proactively delivering the precise answers called for.
