BGI France


BGI France

NMW is a leading law firm in managing sensitive cases and strategic issues, for institutions and chief executives.

NMW consists of a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers, University Professors, financial analysts who have a depth experience of law and international cases.

Our approach for our corporate clients and HNWI consists in making law an offensive tool and strategic support rather than a constraint.

We assist foreign investors and institutions for their business with France and we also support French clients abroad in both advisory and litigation.

Otherwise, we have a strong practice to assist clients in the sale, acquisition and management of their assets in France.

Our clients appreciate our approach and therefore trust the firm to take on transactions in finance, corporate, M&A, antitrust, tax, insurance, real estate and financing, both for advice and for litigation.

NMW is part of BGI, an international organisation of independent law firms.

NMW provides a full English, Portuguese and Spanish bilingual staff.
