Teynier Pic & Associés

21 February 2011

Eric Teynier and Pierre Pic founded the firm after working for many years at Shearman & Sterling in Paris. (For a while they were part of the legal arm of Ernst & Young.)

In 2007, they brought in Laurence Kiffer from Derains & Associés and a number of younger lawyers from well-regarded arbitration shops such as Jeantet Associés

The firm’s worked for a variety of clients from aerospace businesses to modelling agencies, usually, but not always, on ICC matters. It won a pitch to represent the Czech Republic in various investment law cases, including Eastern Sugar, the first case in which a defendant sought to use accession to the EU as a defence.

Teynier penned a chapter on French law in State Entities in International Arbitration (2008), co-edited by Emmanuel Gaillard and Jennifer Younan, of Shearman & Sterling. He is a member of the ICC.

Laurence Kiffer is a board member of “Paris, Home of International Arbitration,” a group presided over by Castaldi & Mourre partner Alexis Mourre that is dedicated to promoting the city as a seat.
