We are an international law firm with 13 offices across the world, covering contentious and non-contentious work. We have built up over the past nearly 150 years a very strong reputation for dispute resolution, in particular litigation and arbitration, firstly in the shipping and insurance areas, but quickly spreading to other sectors. Today we are proud of our uninterrupted history of handling the very biggest and strategic cases.
The French offices, especially Paris and Le Havre, are at the forefront of our contentious activity. Our experienced team of litigators assist clients at all stages of a casualty or a loss: we support our clients at the earliest stage of a crisis in their strategy and their communication, we initiate arrest, safety and protective measures when necessary, we advise on settlement where appropriate and we litigate to achieve the best outcome for our clients.
Beyond our roots in shipping, we are strong in aviation, yachting, rail, energy, offshore, construction, the nuclear sector and the food industry. We handle cases involving insurance, civil and professional liability, sale & purchase, product liability, employment, insolvency, personal injury, fraud and corruption.
Our skills in foreign languages, our knowledge of foreign jurisdictions and our network of experts and correspondents are considerable strengths that we put at the disposal of our clients.
