To give its clients the best possible service, GILDARD GUILLAUME & ASSOCIES and its founding partners have been cultivating five essential values : strategy, expertise, disponibility, transparency and independence.
No legal question can be answered efficiently, whether it's an amicable or a contentious situation, without a prior strategic analysis to define the strengths and weaknesses of the involved players, the threats or opportunities that could be suffered or in the contrary benefit the considered project, advantages or disadvantages already identified. This strategic analysis helps defining the legal choices, whether it is about setting up contracts, lawsuits to launch, opposing defenses, highlighting objectives or selecting targets..
Expertise does not only imply competence and experience of the partners or collaborators, it also needs continuous training, strictness and research, for any legal question, doctrine, case law and any brainstorming going on in the different public administrations. Any advice or action are based on a perfect knowledge of the substantive law and also on its possible developments.
Availability means listening and presence whenever requested, the earliest appointment, reactivity answering questions or facing lawsuits, resolution an pugnacity in all occasions
Transparency commands to inform the client, right from the start, about billing terms and conditions. Based on a fee contract, GILDARD GUILLAUME & ASSOCIES either bills hourly rate fees, flat fees or contingency fees.
Transparency is also about keeping the clients informed at all time and without delay of anything occurring (contacts, offers, agreement drafts, hearing dates, claims and counterclaims, sentences, etc. ...).
GILDARD GUILLAUME & ASSOCIES ensures its clients a complete independence in all given missions. Attentive to any possible conflict of interest, it is careful not to depend on anything which could narrow down its freedom of action.
These values of strategy, expertise, availability, transparency and independence create a close bond between GILDARD GUILLAUME & ASSOCIES and its clients, therefore contributing to its efficiency.
