Although the UK is now a Third Country in terms of its relationship with the EU following Brexit, London and the UK as a whole remains a place to call home for tens of thousands of people with strong connections to France and the Francophonie.
We have a dedicated team of French-speaking lawyers, who can provide a full range of advice to individuals, companies and institutions on a variety of matters, including family, corporate, tax, estate and wealth planning, litigation, arbitration, fraud and reputation protection.
The Group is headed up by Partner Melissa Lesson, a dual French and English national. Melissa has lived in both Paris and London and is a regular visitor to France, supporting her clients, building her network of French advisors and participating in conferences.
Our clients have connections to francophone countries by way of nationality, residence or domicile or may have an interest in companies, trusts or luxury assets registered in francophone jurisdictions. In addition, we are able to draw on our strong relationships with a worldwide network of lawyers and a diverse range of advisors.
Our London location and sensitivity to the cultural needs of French-speaking clients makes us the ideal choice for complex, cross-border matters. We are also members of the French Chamber of Commerce of Great Britain.
