Our way fo providing services
We have developed a team method: each file is processed, evaluated and monitored by at least two lawyers, which increases the speed of progress of the file. However, no activity is billed in duplicate. In order to reduce costs, we have also put in place a step-by-step process:
- the evaluation of the file and, if this evaluation is favorable,
- the prosecution itself. In addition, we have a substantial list of experts who analyse the files we submit to them.
Our firm has developed a work method that is functional and effective. At all stages of the file, we are straightforward and forthcoming with our clients regarding their situation and their rights.
