Soulez Larivière & Associés was founded by Daniel Soulez Larivière in 1969, and has been shaped from the outset by its founder’s passion for innovation used to better defend clients’ interests. A leading firm of criminal defence lawyers, Soulez Larivière & Associés is also recognised for its expertise in the areas of aviation law and liability. The firm has been advising and assisting its clients for almost fifty years, always with the same determination and hunger to find a solution to every problem — even if that means inventing one!
The firm has a proven record of successfully managing crises and disasters (including the Rainbow Warrior, Furiani stadium, the sinking of the Erika, the AZF chemical factory explosion, the collapse of CDG airport’s Terminal 2E and the Concorde crash), and of handling complex, symbolic and often international cases (such as the allegations of forced labour in Burma and corruption in Iran). Its lawyers are accordingly very aware of the importance of the “right of defence”, and possess the skills that are essential when working in highly sensitive situations.
For a lawyer, this type of case is one of the best practical experiences imaginable for learning how to deal with crises or unprecedented situations. Handling an exceptional case brings experience, skills and knowledge that can then be applied in cases that at first sight appear more run-of-the-mill, but which are in fact always unique.
The firm’s approach to its defence work is firmly anchored in the core values of independence, integrity and a commitment to serve its clients, combined with a constant focus on ethics.
