Bryan Cave Combines with Berwin Leighton Paisner to Form Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP Learn More

David Père, counsel in Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner’s Paris office, was interviewed for La Lettre des Juristes d'Affaires (LJA) regarding the new trend of mock trials in France. Père was interviewed regarding the unique preparation for police interviews that BCLP offers clients to better prepare them for hearings by police in real-life conditions. "Police custody is intrusive and can have impacts on a job, on the firm survival, and even on a couple; it is therefore essential to be prepared," Père said. The goal of the exercise is to make potential suspects understand the issues of police custody. "It's not about learning by heart and reciting, like a robot, the elements to be repeated during the real custody." Article published in the LJA n°55 – July/August 2018
