Triplet & Associés is a French law practice founded in 1950 by the late Jean-Jacques Triplet and in good standing with the French Bar since then.

 

Maître Jean-Jacques Triplet

Maître Jean-Jacques Triplet (†) was a member of the Lille Bar Council from 1960-1962, 1969-1970, 1983-1985 and from 1991 to 1993.

Furthermore, he was duly elected and served as Bâtonnier (President) of the Lille Bar from 1989 to 1990.

During the course of his career in private practice he developed a strong interest in matters international and, over the years, shared his savoir-faire and enthusiasm with his partners and associates.

The current members of Triplet & Associés remain keen internationalists and we are fully admitted and entitled to practice throughout the whole of France, including in the French overseas territories (for example in the Caribbean and the Pacific).

Moreover, and doubtless because many of our lawyers are bilingual in French and English, a considerable number of our clients are based outside France notably in the USA, Canada, the UK and Ireland as well as in a number of other English-speaking countries.

In essence we provide our clients with advice, in English, on French law matters and our litigators regularly appear in Courts throughout the whole of France, for instance, from Calais to Cannes, from Paris to Perpignan and from Lille to Lyons.
