MONTREAL, May 15, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - In a first, the Paris-based law firm DS Avocats, a leading French business law firm of international stature, is partnering with Welch Bussieres to establish a presence in Québec. DS Avocats' offices in France include Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Lille and on Réunion Island. DS Avocats is also present in six locations in Asia where the firm has operated for 25 years: 3 offices in China (Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai), two in Vietnam (Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City) and one in Singapore.
DS Avocats is a founding member of the DS Network, grouping under a single name firms that share the common objective of forming a single entity with an international reach. The DS Network is already in Barcelona, Brussels, Milan and Buenos Aires and will soon be in Brazil.
In partnering with DS Avocats, the Canadian firm Welch Bussieres becomes the network's bridgehead in North America, joining over 250 attorneys and other legal professionals on four continents (Europe, Asia and the Americas) throughout 10 countries in 18 cities.
Welch Bussieres is the reflection of Quebec's bilingual and bicultural society, offering a unique and privileged access in Canada to European entities seeking to develop their North American business opportunities and markets.
The partnership between DS Avocats and Welch Bussieres confirms the latter's international ambitions in view of steady developments and deeper business opportunities reflected by CETA, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union, as well as cements the former's objectives for North American expansion.
At DS Welch Bussieres's core is its ability to meet the needs of small and medium sized business in a world of global markets and international opportunities. This is based on the firm's multidisciplinary, multi-jurisdictional, highly specialized and focused expertise.
Firmly located throughout Asia, Europe, North and South America, DS Welch Bussieres accompanies its clients across the world in support of their legal needs with lawyers sharing common values, common objectives and a uniform commitment to outstanding legal services.
Lawyers as architects and partners for business needs on the ground.
"We offer more than lawyers for our client's needs, we are business partners in a global economy", so say in unison Daniel Chausse and Jean-Francois Welch, managing partners at their respective firms. To get there, they state, "we must always establish the bond of trust with our clients through an intimate knowledge of their business needs".
