Squadra Avocats reinforces its commercial litigation practice, welcoming Benoît Javaux as a Partner to co-chair the “Business Litigation, Industrial Risks & Insurance” practice with Solën Guezille and Cataldo Cammarata.

Benoît Javaux represents French and foreign companies in their complex litigation matters (post-acquisition, corporate, IT projects, financial litigation, liability, etc.) before domestic courts and arbitral tribunals. His pugnacity and strategic intelligence have been recognized by several French and international rankings. Named “Rising Star” in France by Legal 500 EMEA in 2020, his clients say that “Benoît Javaux demonstrates great intellectual acuity. He provides fine and pertinent analysis and is creative and hard-working” (Legal 500 EMEA 2020). Benoît is also ranked “Expert Lawyer” in product liability by Who’s Who Legal since 2018.

Prior to joining Squadra, Benoît practiced business litigation for over a decade with the French full-service law firm August Debouzy before moving on in 2017 to create, alongside Kami Haeri and three other colleagues, the Commercial Litigation, White Collar and Compliance department of the Paris office of US law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan.

« Benoît comes from an international firm dedicated to the most complex litigation, recognized as the world’s leading litigation firm. He has been immersed in this culture of excellence and outstanding client care. It is on the strength of these skills that he is joining us to complement our litigation offering and strengthen the synergies between the different areas of the firm », commented François Lan, Managing Partner.
