We are committed to providing our clients with rapid responses and ensuring that their interests are taken care of as quickly as possible. This requires the full availability of our partners and associates, including the guarantee of continuous digital contact.
The skills of each of our partners and associates are put to work on the often cross-cutting and multidisciplinary problems of our clients. This dual approach provides clients with greater security and ensures that all the legal means necessary for the success of their claims and the defence of their interests are used.
The most absolute protection is assured to our clients by the respect of a strict professional secrecy and the confidentiality of the data and information provided by our clients. “The lawyer is the necessary confidant of the client. The lawyer’s professional secrecy is of public order. It is general, absolute and unlimited in time” (article 2.1. of the RIN).
