  • I would like to thank Benjamin Kergueno, for his excellent service and very helpful advice. I was looking for an English speaking lawyer to advise me on French property law, both his knowledge of French law and his level of English were outstanding, and I would recommend his services to anyone looking for legal assistance in France.

  • Mtre Kergueno proved to be a true voice of reason and great judgement throughout a stressful time for me. At every point I felt confident in his knowledge, and his approach to matters was calm and professional. During a period when setting up a business in a foreign country can be daunting, Mtre Kergueno took much of the pressure away from me. I will continue to use Mtre Kergueno in the future.

  • We would definitely recommend Benjamin to anyone needing legal assistance. We were in urgent need of a lawyer to assist us with documentation from our home country. Not only was Benjamin very quick to reply to our initial email enquiry but he was able to see us at short notice which was great as we had a very tight deadline to meet. Benjamin was incredibly helpful, and very patient with us (there were a lot of documents). His English is also fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to use him again should the need arise.
