For 20+ years, Ulys has represented clients entrusted to us by foreign lawyers, before French and Belgian courts.
Over the years Ulys has written a guide aimed at foreign lawyers. The overall purpose is to provide valuable information and tips to foreign practitioners.
Whether you are currently engaged in a litigation or contemplating this option, this Guide will help foreign practitioners to understand better how such litigation will take place.
To the extent possible, the author has tried to make it comprehensible for any foreign lawyer, regardless his or her country of origin.
