With a leading litigation team, our vision is focused on the legal aspects of crisis management and defending our clients’ interests in court.
We implement a modern view of litigation based on the following principles:
- anticipating and mapping risks (notably accounting, reputational, regulatory, etc.);
- pre-litigation negotiations and settlements;
- preventing and managing mass litigation;
- ensuring good relations with the authorities;
- judicial procedures and alternative methods (arbitration, mediation, conciliation).
Our high-level litigation activity frequently leads us to work on behalf of clients with sophisticated activities, investment funds, banking or insurance groups, regulated sectors (energy, media), and automobile and industrial groups. The firm has worked on many sensitive and well-known cases in recent years such as Vélib, Airbnb, Lactalis, PIP Prostheses, etc.
Our attorneys have a recognized level of expertise in complex and highly publicized cases. We accompany our clients closely and diligently in their defense. We frequently work together with multidisciplinary teams (legal, financial, or technical experts, auditors, foreign attorneys, auditors, etc.) and with our clients’ business specialists.
The firm’s partners are regularly involved in arbitral proceedings, whether “ad hoc” or with the International Chamber of Commerce, domestic or international. They act as advisers, but also as members of the arbitral tribunal.
Our attorneys have extensive experience in complex contractual disputes (supply contracts, partnerships, joint ventures, financing, etc.), partner (agreements, exits, minority/majority relationships, etc.) and acquisition disputes (liability guarantees, SPA litigation, etc.). We also support our creditor clients in insolvency litigation.
White collar crime and Government enforcement. Our attorneys’ experience makes it possible to consider all aspects of difficult legal situations, including their criminal dimension. Thus, we provide informed and practical advice in an environment of increasing economic and financial criminal prosecution and the increase of administrative investigations, with special attention to corporate criminal law and criminal competition law.
We are involved in the risk identification stage, then we provide support in the investigation phases, including before parliamentary commissions, until the rendering of a judgment, if necessary.
Thanks to our experience in these situations, we offer our clients customized support that is both friendly and rigorous.
