In the advent of Europe and globalization of business relations, the law firm he founded, Advocatis Avocats Associés, relies on correspondents and partners that assure proper international representation and assistance to its corporate clientele.
Th firm is internationally distinguished by its lawyers and jurists, all of whom have training in multiple disciplines such as economics, management and law. It is through these complementary horizons that Advocatis Avocats Associés is able to efficiently respond to the daily concerns of the business world: to advise, forewarn, assist and defend.
Nowadays, in a world with increasingly complex laws, it is only by specialization that makes for a counsel that is both relevant and efficient. Law, which is often regarded as a constricting leash, is, for Advocatis, a useful tool of performance.
Legal counselling is the most important activity for the law firm in the sense that the team attends to the daily needs of its clients, responding to difficulties encountered with the creation, management and transfer of a business entity. A business entity requires the assistance of specialists to forewarn and manage against commercial risks, social and tax accountability.

In parallel, to attend specialization and details of certain projects, Advocatis Avocats Associés employs full time collaborators with non-law degrees but with specific knowledge in relevant domains. Facing litigation, the firm eliminates up to 80% of cases before reaching the court process.
