Our firm


We are an independent law firm based in Paris boasting a global reach, with a focus on litigation, arbitration and amicable dispute resolution.

What our clients like about us:



Our founders

Our firm was founded in 2004 by two established lawyers in the arbitration community: Eric Teynier and Pierre Pic.

After practicing at leading French and international law firms, they envisioned a new concept of a litigation and arbitration “boutique” law firm matching the highest standards of top tier firms in Paris and abroad.

This model means that for nearly 20 years now, the firm has been independently developing high-end, niche legal solutions and is much less exposed to the risk of conflicts of interest.

The first full-service dispute resolution boutique firm

Our firm has continued to grow since it was founded and now offers a comprehensive range of dispute resolution services to our clients, who include States and public entities, companies, investors and international organisations. These services range from dispute prevention and alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and pre-contentious strategy, as well as enforcement and setting aside of court decisions or arbitration awards, while the conduct of arbitral or court proceedings remains at the heart of our practice.

A major player in domestic and international dispute resolution

Having dealt with over 400 cases involving more than 60 countries in sectors as varied as aeronautics and space, construction, infrastructure and engineering, defence, energy and natural resources, industry, telecommunications and new technologies, our firm is recognised internationally as one of the key players in the resolution of disputes through court and arbitral proceedings.


Our commitments

Client satisfaction is our primary objective. Accordingly, we commit to the following:

  • Responsiveness and Efficiency: Most of the time, our clients require urgent assistance. We are able to respond to our clients’ needs within extremely short turnaround times. From our selection of team members through to the delivery of our services, everything we do is driven by our results-oriented culture.
  • Commitment and determination: All of our lawyers are fully invested in our clients’ cases, which means we guarantee the highest level of performance, commitment and determination throughout the matters and proceedings that we handle.
  • Pragmatism and Rigour: We are familiar with our clients’ industry sectors. We offer them tailored solutions that meet their commercial, technical and financial challenges and provide them with outstanding service.
  • Strategic and tactical acumen: Not only do we provide our clients with the best legal services, but our lawyers also offer sound strategic and tactical advice in handling our client’s often complex cases.
  • Independence: Our firm is not part of an international network which guarantees our independence when it comes to governance, managing conflicts of interest and pricing policy.

Our clients are our best ambassadors:
