A valued training
Continuous training is an unavoidable duty for the staff of our firm because it is the guarantee of professional quality that we owe to our clients. That is why we have created more than twenty years ago the Lexteam group dedicated to the continuous training of the firms that are members of the Lexteam as well as think tanks within specialized committees. Through experience, BBLM Attorneys are regularly asked to participate in training activities organized by associations and professional unions. A former director of the School of Southeast Avocats (E.D.A.) and responsible for the professional training of the attorneys in Marseille for many years, Bernard Bouquet is a member of the Law and Business Association and of the French Institute of Collective Proceedings Practitioners (IFPPC).
