Founded in 2010, BG2V has now nearly 35 lawyers who all share our firm's values. These values are the shared bedrock that unites all of the firm's lawyers. They also form the basis of both BG2V's strategic positioning and of our services.
The firm's partners have all previously worked in leading business law firms in Paris. Through our teams, we cultivate and share a culture of professional discipline and excellence so as to provide our clients with tailored services, with the same demanding professionalism and a high level of legal expertise.
Within the firm, the trust and solidarity uniting us are essential for each lawyer to be able to develop and to put his skills to work. Trust and solidarity are also the cement in the relationship between our clients and our firm.
Our involvement, availability and combativeness serve as the guarantee that we provide our clients with the best possible defense of their interests. In an advisory capacity and in litigation, and regardless of the field of expertise, our work is based on our unfailing, day-to-day commitment at our clients' side. Lastly, the range of activities covered by BG2V allows us to assist our clients with all of their legal issues.
Through our entrepreneurial model, the size of our firm, the personal involvement and dynamism of each of our lawyers, we are highly responsive and creative and we offer our clients tailor-made services adapted to their needs. The training some of our lawyers have received in leading business schools (HEC, ESSEC) and their experience in renowned companies (IBM, Crédit Lyonnais, Casino Group, etc.) further adds to our dynamism and allows us to offer our clients pragmatic solutions adapted to their operational and strategic challenges. Furthermore, combining an advisory role and litigation practice gives us a multi-disciplinary perspective, which is essential for effectively responding to our clients’ needs.
