Precision & Procedure
No two words better describe how to practise French law. France, like no other country, is a legal and administrative obstacle course. This is why when you choose a lawyer to handle a French matter; you need to work with a firm who specialises only in French law.
We have English and French lawyers, yet all live and work in Toulouse. Better still each of us trained and qualified as French lawyers “avocats” – what better way to understand every nuance?
Being there on the spot is certainly practical, but the secret of Bright Avocats’ success is simple: listening, asking the right questions, and finding the most effective course to a satisfactory conclusion.
