BG2V

A significant portion of the matters handled by BG2V involve several jurisdictions.

International

All the firm’s lawyers work in French and English, and several lawyers also speak Spanish, Russian and Arabic and, therefore, are able to handle international cases effectively.

In addition to the Paris Bar, several BG2V's lawyers are also admitted to foreign bars, including the New York Bar. To assist our clients with their cross-border matters—notably in continental Europe, in Anglo-Saxon countries and in the Middle East—BG2V has developed preferred relationships with foreign firms who share our demanding professionalism and a high level of legal expertise. When we select our foreign partners, we have a preference for non-exclusive relationships.

In so doing, this allows us to choose the most competent firms, on a case-by-case basis, that are able to provide tailor-made services to our clients. To further and complete this network, several BG2V lawyers are members of and actively participate in the activities of international lawyers’ networks, such as the American Bar Association or the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA). 

BG2V is also a member of IR Global, the world's most innovative multi-disciplinary professional services network that provides advice to companies and individuals across 150 jurisdictions and  is the French representative of the "Foreign direct investments" section of IR Global (to know more:https://www.irglobal.com/advisor/herve-de-kervasdoue).

All of this allows BG2V to effectively assist its French clients with their international businesses and our foreign clients with their businesses in France. Below are a few examples of BG2V’s cross-border work:

  • Counsel to an agri-food group for the acquisition of a transformation plant located in Eastern Africa;
  • Counsel to an agricultural cooperative for its plan to acquire a grain products transformation plant located in Denmark; and
  • Counsel to a raw resources distributor for implementation in the United States of a joint venture with an English partner, 
  • Counsel to a Czech investment fund in connection with its acquisition of a stake in a French start-up specialized in e-health.

BG2V’s lawyers also take part in international conferences.
