The concept of family transcends borders

Globalisation has had a profound impact on family law, particularly in cases of expatriation, estate planning or problems linked to filiation.

With a combination of pedagogy and common sense, bwg lawyers attach the utmost importance to maintaining a pragmatic approach to international situations, particularly in financial but also cultural aspects. The firm’s main goal is to contribute to the resolution of conflicts while minimising collateral damage.

bwg works hand in hand with a network of the world's most prominent lawyers, thanks to our long-term involvement in international organisations.
