To be able to handle these cases effectively, all the firm’s lawyers work in French and English, and several lawyers also speak Spanish, Russian and Arabic.
In addition to the Paris Bar, we also have lawyers who 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).
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:
