WITH YOU
ACROSS BORDERS

Since the firm was founded, we have had an international outlook.

Many of our lawyers have foreign bar admissions. We have the capability to coordinate your international projects and litigation and liaise with our local law firm correspondents in all main economic places around the world.

Our international footprint is also evidenced by the large number of foreign companies, among some of the most prestigious, who turn to us to advise then on matters in France. Our presence in Brussels means we can represent and defend your interests before the European courts and regulatory bodies. We coordinate many international projects involving numerous teams based in different countries. Thanks to the success of these cross-border collaborations we are present in several American, German, English or Asian group panels who favor flexibility and recognized local expertise.

You benefit from our strong relationships with correspondent firms in Europe, North and South America, and in Asia, with whom we have worked on matters together and who have been chosen based on their excellence, independence and responsiveness.

Our
Experience

Working alongside one of our correspondent firms based in the U.K., we advised an English industrial group in connection with the sale to a German industrial group of its turbine gas and compressor businesses in France and in New Caledonia.

In coordination with several European correspondent firms, we advised a world leading sports equipment corporation on retail distribution issues, and consumer protection policies related to pricing and promotional activities in France.

Partnering with the U.S. and Canadian law firms of a major mass retail corporation, we advised on all the legal aspects involved in setting up their business in France. Lawyers from our corporate, tax, employment, distribution, real estate and urban planning practices worked on this matter.

Our corporate and tax teams worked alongside one of our U.K. correspondent firms to advise an English investment fund on the sale of an investment in France.
