ABOUT OUR LAW FIRMS

WHO WE ARE AND WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

Our website emerged from the joint venture between our law firms Lazareff Le Bars and Girard Gibbs LLP, an alliance created under the leadership of Serge Lazareff, Benoit Le Bars, and Daniel C. Girard. Our aim is to provide practical resources on international arbitration, as well as facilitate access to first-rate arbitration specialists capable of resolving international disputes in forums worldwide.

Collectively, we have spent decades litigating and arbitrating, and have a unique track record of successfully representing clients in high stake and sensitive arbitration matters around the world. Our lawyers have thorough knowledge of all phases of the arbitral process and extensive experience with all the major arbitral institutions.

Our international arbitration lawyers are consistently retained by companies, associations, government entities, as well as individuals who seek our skill, professionalism and the level of understanding that is key to meeting their needs.
