Our firm’s approach is based on four commitments that we consider essential to better defend the interests of our clients and to meet their expectations and needs:
- A pragmatic, communicative and tailored approach
- High-standard services, with a focus on precision, relevance and creativity
- A reliable relationship based on accessibility, availability and responsiveness
- A transparent, adapted and foreseeable invoicing.
A pragmatic and individual approachWe have at heart the intention to maintain a simple and honest relationship with our clients, based on close collaboration and real-time information.
We favor a pragmatic approach that meets the everyday reality of our clients, and strive to ensure that it is adapted to their every need and the specific constraints of their business.
Taking on a case starts with a first consultation which will allow us to determine your needs and expectations, to establish an initial analysis of your situation and to establish what course of action to take.
We will then proceed with an evaluation of the costs and delays depending on the available options.
With regards to litigation, we will follow an objective and realistic evaluation of your chances of success and any eventual risks you may face, all the while favoring, where possible, an amicable outcome that satisfies the interests of both parties.
Expertise, precision and creativityWhen it comes to both legal advice and litigation, we assure you that we will provide a quality service, based on high level technical expertise and a concrete knowledge of the world of business.
We consider that the law and the various legal techniques available should serve as a means to develop and optimize business activity. In order to make this possible, we ensure that our knowledge and resources are up to date, allowing us to provide you with original and innovative solutions, adapted to your needs.
Our firmly international orientation allows us to work in English, French and Spanish alike.
Finally, we work as part of a network of professionals both in France and abroad, with particular links with consular services around the word.
Proximity, availability and reactivityWhen using the services of our firm, you have the guarantee that the same representative will follow your case from start to end, taking part in meetings and, with regards to litigation, attending hearings and dealing with any enforcement action.
We offer the same local relationship, whether you are based in France, Canada or elsewhere, with the same level of reactivity available as soon as you engage our services.
Every case being a priority, we guarantee a high level of availability to be able to deal with your legal problems and respond to your questions, all the while guaranteeing that we will keep you informed of any new developments as soon as possible.
Respecting deadlines is essential. As such, we will anticipate deadlines rigorously, preparing with you every step of your case in advance in order to allow you to make an informed and confident decision.
In particular, we will submit every draft document to you sufficiently in advance to allow you to take the time necessary to leave any comments.
Transparency and predictabilityTransparency and predictability are key when it comes to our invoicing. It is essential that our clients can anticipate the cost of the management of their case, notably by being regularly informed of the work performed on their behalf.
The invoicing of our fees is based on an hourly rate that is to be determined during our first meeting.
During the first consultation, we will proceed with an evaluation of the deadlines and cost of our intervention, depending on the nature of your demand and the complexity of the case.
This first consultation will be followed by the signing of a letter of engagement covering notably the invoicing of fees.
Invoicing will take place on a regular basis, for greater predictability, and every invoice is accompanied by a detailed description of the work carried out.
In exceptional circumstances, it may be possible to put in place a fixed fee arrangement, depending on the nature, scale and volume of cases.
FeesOur hourly rate for private individuals is € 230 excl. taxes (or € 276 incl. taxes).
Our hourly rate for corporations is € 250 excl. taxes (or € 300 incl. taxes). A yearly subscription may be considered, with quarterly reviews to adjust the agreed fees to your needs.
