France: Business Crime Defence Review 2016


A Review of Business Crime Defence in 2016, by Emmanuel Marsigny of Marsigny Avocats Business crime defence in France currently faces substantial changes with regards to both criminal procedure and substantive law. It is especially worthy to present some of the most significant on-going trends, such as: the new limitations to the double jeopardy in major white-collar crime fields; the attempts to develop transactional procedures; the expansion of money laundering prosecution; and the predicted significant evolution of anti-corruption regulations.

The French Legal Market 2016


France’s traditionally strong economy and its relationship with the European continent define the makeup of its unique legal market. Centred on the capital, a significant number of international Anglo-Saxon law firms have their largest continental office based in the city, with some having been established around half a century ago. Their primary competition, aside from each other, is the large and highly competitive independent French firms. However, a more recent development in the French capital has been the relatively strong growth and diversification of local and boutique law firms, which can often be seen acting on some of the highest-profile matters in the country. 

Switzerland Special Report
