Our Values & Contributions

Our Values

When the firm was established in 2008, our partners believed that the highest-quality practice would be achieved by establishing a creative and collaborative working environment and always striving for the highest ethical standards of the profession.

We have maintained these ideals as the firm has grown and expanded into new markets. Advice and assistance for clients are developed in a collaborative way: We ensure that each lawyer – from the most junior to the most senior – is fully included in the process and gives their best to the work while preserving a strong sense of leadership for each assignment entrusted to us, whether large or small.

This method has proven its effectiveness in fully understanding the strategy and requirements of our clients and in the efficient delivery of our services.

Our Contributions

We firmly believe in the value of social and community involvement and our activities extend well beyond profit-making endeavours. Our team members are proud to provide their expertise and assistance on a pro-bono basis to numerous not-for-profit organisations in Vietnam and Myanmar.

Our lawyers also regularly participate in professional training activities and seminars. As an example, our partners have led a training session for Hanoi lawyers organised by the Vietnam Bar Federation on the settlement of disputes by arbitration.

We support an association of law students in the organisation of academic seminars and pleading and advocacy contests. We also participate in the teaching of French law courses to French learners provided by a public institution.

Finally, our lawyers serve or have served in leadership roles in professional organisations. Managing partner Nicolas Audier has been elected for two successive terms as Chairman of the European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (EuroCham) where he previously served as Co-Chairman and Deputy Chairman.
