A significant and increasing proportion of our work involves an international dimension, whether in support of in-bound M&A for international clients, out-bound M&A for our French clients, or in support of international transactions outside France for our established non-French clients. Our litigation and disputes resolution services are regularly sought by international clients who seek the very best representation on complex matters before the French courts or arbitration tribunals.
The firm maintains strong working relationships with other leading independent law firms in major jurisdictions in Europe, the Americas and Asia. We have significant experience leading and participating in integrated multi-national, multi-disciplinary, multi-firm teams to provide seamless client service. As we are independent, we are able to lead or participate on matters with other firms based solely on an individual client’s needs and tailored to the demands of a particular matter.
Two of our partners, Ben Burman and Forrest Alogna, are U.S.-trained lawyers who are admitted at both the Paris and New York bars and who practiced for a number of years with a leading law firm in New York before relocating to Paris. A majority of our French partners have spent significant time practicing in New York or London and are bilingual; a significant number of our associates have studied and worked, and have dual admissions, in foreign jurisdictions.
