Our Core Values

HENRY TIERNY AVOCATS ASSOCIES reflects our ethics, based on keeping a balance between economic success and defending just causes. 

Although Transport law is the core of our activity, our practice has led us to develop special skills in business and international private law over the years. 

We also dedicate time to the human aspect of our Profession, in accordance with our Oath, and take pro bono cases to contribute to our community in civil matters, housing, criminal law, foreigners’ law, in collaboration with humanitarian associations.
The research background of both Ph.D. partners has given them a drive for international matters, and legal innovation, as well as a broad legal culture, both domestic and international, one which gives them a creative angle to tackle today’s complex issues for Business or Individuals.

HENRY TIERNY AVOCATS ASSOCIES law office deals with both out-of-court negotiations and judicial litigations, providing counselling litigation, and alternative dispute resolution services in France and internationally.
