Since its creation, FTPA has acquired recognized knowhow and expertise in dispute resolution, one of our core practice areas, relating to complex matters as well as assisting clients both at pre-litigation and post-litigation stages.
We routinely rely on our diverse and multilingual / multijurisdictional litigation capabilities to advise and act for French and international clients.
Our litigation skills also include advising clients on suitable strategies, depending on the type of dispute and interests at stake, particularly to prevent or settle disputes out of court.
