We established our Paris office in 1999. Transactions involving French law are co-ordinated by our London office, with our Paris-based lawyers sourcing and managing the delivery of French legal advice to UK and non-UK based clients.

Our Paris office also provides English law advice to French clients and acts as a liaison between these clients and our London office.

The office regularly works, and has excellent relations, with all the leading independent French law firms. Our bilingual team of lawyers has many years of experience of working in France and in particular of advising on international transactions.
