Our firm handles highly sensitive and strategic cases that call for solutions requiring more than simply having knowledge of the law.
In each case, we bring particular attention to the following aspects :
••• AVAILABILITY AND REACTIVITY
A decisive factor is our ability to make ourselves immediately available in the critical situations which we are asked to handle, and to rapidly mobilize teams of lawyers whose areas of expertise complement one another.
••• ADJUSTING OUR RESPONSE TO INDIVIDUAL CASES BASED ON OUR CLIENTS’ SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES AND CIRCUMSTANCES
Our team includes attorneys from a variety of cultural backgrounds, many of whom have several academic degrees and have gained experience living or studying abroad.
This has been our law firm’s philosophy from the very beginning.
We believe that it is essential to take the full measure of the economic and political context and potential media coverage of each case that is entrusted to us, and to be able to work together with attorneys from other countries when dealing with transnational cases.
••• IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF THE FACTS
In our view, it all begins with the facts. We place major emphasis on the facts, and spare no time and energy establishing and thoroughly analyzing them. In legal matters, those who master the facts have a competitive edge over their adversaries.
••• PREPARING OUR CLIENTS
Our firm often deals with investigations by judicial and regulatory bodies - such as the French Market Authority (AMF), the French Court of Auditors (Cour des Comptes), the French Court of Financial and Budgetary Discipline, and their foreign counterparts, such as the SEC and the CFTC in the United States, and the FSA and the FCA in the United Kingdom.
We take great care in preparing our clients before their interviews during investigations or in the trial phase.
••• HIGH-QUALITY LEGAL WRITING
In the difficult cases that are entrusted to us, the facts are always complex.
But a case cannot be won unless those complicated facts are presented in a persuasive manner.
All the members of our law firm have a love of culture and the arts. We consider the quality of our legal documents and oral arguments to be of paramount importance. We devote a great deal of effort in making our legal writing clear, precise, and incisive.
••• THE ART OF ARGUMENT
The role of a litigator is to be convincing. Weighing the various arguments, prioritizing them, assessing their many facets - both positive and negative, sensing how the arguments will be received and constantly adapting them, is at the very heart of our work.
