Thanks to a clientele composed by more than 50% of internationally-focused companies, we are familiar with issues that French or foreign companies evolving in an international environment are usually facing.

Our specific interest for business international law is notably illustrated through Me Temple-Boyer's own academic background and professional experience. Graduated of Sciences-Po (IEP Paris) and fluent in English, Me Temple-Boyer has soon decided to specialize in international business law (University Degree of European alaw - University Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne).

After a few years of practice spent in global lawfirms, Me Temple-Boyer completed her academic background by a University Degree in International Business Litigation allowing her to: 

- draft and negotiate business agreements with an international dimension;

- assist and represent a French and international clientele within the context of disputes dealing with international rules

    • assistance and representation of clients from various sectors, summoned before French courts, within the context of various commercial disputes; apart from defense on the merits, we raise if necessary any procedural hitches based on conflict of law rules and/or forum selection provisions.
