Boutique spécialisée dans la résolution des différends, Signature Litigation AARPI est toujours en forte progression sur le marché depuis son lancement à Paris en janvier 2019 ; le cabinet a accueilli en septembre 2020 Flore Poloni (ex August Debouzy ) qui est une spécialiste de l’arbitrage commercial. La double compétence du cabinet, en matière de droit des assurances et de résolution des conflits, en fait un conseil particulièrement estimé des acteurs de l’industrie aéronautique ; compagnies aériennes, constructeurs et assureurs. Le cabinet est également en capacité de traiter des dossiers transfrontaliers. L’équipe est réputée pour son expertise de pointe dans le domaine de la responsabilité des produits ; elle est en charge de plusieurs dossiers de premier plan faisant suite à des catastrophes aériennes. Boeing, Global Aerospace et Rolls Royce font tous appel aux services du cabinet. L’associé fondateur Thomas Rouhette est particulièrement reconnu pour son expertise dans la gestion des litiges transfrontaliers.

Le cabinet gère des affaires de grande envergure. La boutique est spécialisée dans le traitement des litiges complexes, de dimension nationale ou internationale – le volant d’affaires comprend néanmoins une majorité des dossiers internationaux, la présence londonienne du cabinet aidant. Le cabinet réunit une excellente équipe, dont les membres les plus proéminents sont Emmanuèle Lutfalla et Thomas Rouhette qui codirigent la pratique. A noter, le recrutement en septembre 2020 de Flore Poloni (ex counsel chez August Debouzy ) en qualité d’associée qui vient fortement renforcer l’expertise du cabinet sur l’arbitrage commercial international.
