Deschenaux, Hornblower & Partners, LLP
We are an entrepreneurial international jurists firm that aims to avoid litigation as much as possible. We believe that making money from the misfortunes and quarrels of others is not a harmonious way of living. Our positive attitude enhances our credibility and therefore gives our clients the confidence to entrust us with important matters such as financing operations, because our clients know that they are hiring a legal and financial representative without enemies from past litigation unrelated to them. We believe that the modern business law firm must integrate skills from other professional domains such as finance, marketing & communications.
Our practice as international financial jurists is exactly the opposite to that of attorneys-at-law.
We are builders making money on our clients’ achievements and successes not on their woes and failures. Generally we do not deal with disputes and litigations. We do not appear in court except for the companies we administer or for free idealistic causes.
