Our method

Through our experience in international liability and insurance law we have developed a method for settling this type of claims giving our clients the ability

  • anticipate their obligations according to the applicable law,
  • assess the risks,
  • consider any subrogatory actions and
  • limit management costs.

We are regularly appointed by foreign law firms as experts before foreign courts to draft  legal opinions in French law and testify under oath. This consists not only in translating the applicable provisions but in explaining in detail French courts assess the rules.

Our English speaking lawyers have been trained in mediation and other alternative methods of dispute resolutionAs a result, we can promote any amicble settlement of the claim as soon as the situation allows.

We maintain a network of correspondents and experts – accountants, doctors, engineers, architects – we create, whenever required a multidisciplinary team able to deal all aspects of a claim.

We have also developed our presence in the French Overseas Territories through our office in Fort-de-France (Martinique).
