Our Firm accompanies and assists its clients, individuals and legal entities, private or public actors, by offering tailor-made services in advice and litigation.

In terms of advice, our Firm is able to produce “Legal Opinions”: legal opinions intended for national and international clients.

We offer Legal Opinion in several languages ​​(French, Arabic, English and Spanish), and in all disciplines of Moroccan law, French and European law, and international law. In the event of a dispute, we first favour an amicable approach to settling the dispute (conclusion of a transactional memorandum of understanding), because we know that such an approach will be better applied by the parties.

If negotiations fail, our Firm represents and assists its clients before the courts. The Firm can intervene before all the courts of the Kingdom as well as before the French courts, in particular through its network of partner Firms.

Generally speaking, social security refers to any programme created to shield society from the instability brought on by personal tragedies like unemployment or the loss of a wage earner. It is hard to foresee which families will have to deal with these costs in any given year, but a certain proportion of homes should be prepared for disaster on an annual basis.

A social insurance programme supported by the government distributes the risk among all members of society, ensuring that no one household is utterly destroyed by the suspension or cessation of incoming wages.
