An Experienced International Law Firm

Villard Cornec & Partners has over 35 years of experience in international practice, representing private as well as professional clients, corporate executives and (small) business owners. We carefully prepare each case and take considerable pride in the ability to manage litigation economically, efficiently, and successfully.

Our firm is comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of attorneys. Each of our attorneys has broad experience in his or her own field(s) and defends clients in an array of litigation matters.

Business relations and/or family issues involving very different legal jurisdictions (USA, Canada, Great-Britain, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Russia and Eastern Europe, Spain and Latin America, Asia) are our specialty. Our strength lies in our experience, knowledge of the foreign language and culture, and a carefully sourced network of contacts in those countries.
