Ranking Chambers & Partners 2020

19 February 2020

Zabaldano Avocats were recognized again among the most important law firm in Monaco for the international ranking Chambers & Partners 2020 as a “strong litigation practice representing clients in both criminal and civil disputes.”

In this edition, Arnaud Zabaldano stood out once more as a notable practitioner in civil and criminal litigation. Sources report that “if you need someone who is very proud and reactive in a situation that is constantly evolving and you need to adapt the strategy and change tactics, Zabaldano is excellent.”

Chambers & Partners has a history of 30 years qualifying the best firms and lawyers in 190 countries around the world, which makes their study one of the most respected in the legal context. This directory carries out an exhaustive annual investigation which takes into account the opinion of the clients advised, the quality and magnitude of the cases or transactions carried out by each firm, and its market positioning. The result is the classification of firms, their areas of expertise and their lawyers in levels or “bands”.

Many thanks to our clients for this recognition and congratulations to all who belong to Zabaldano Avocats for their commitment.
