Our team of Litigation and Arbitration lawyers intervenes in all areas of business litigation and represents its clients before the French courts and arbitration bodies.

Business Litigation

LERINS & BCW assists French and international companies and their executives in all of their business law disputes in the preventive phase (mediation, conciliation, etc.) and in pre-litigation and litigation negotiation, from the development of strategy and argumentation up to representation before the French courts.


LERINS & BCW intervenes in domestic and international arbitration proceedings either as a lawyer for its clients or as an arbitrator.
