Bougartchev Moyne Associés AARPI was formed in January 2017, when Kiril Bougartchev and Emmanuel Moyne joined forces to create a law firm combining all the disciplines of business litigation and specialising in criminal law, where the hallmarks are independence, liberty, versatility, flexibility and innovation. The firm is the fruit of 30 years of professional experience gained by the two founding partners at Gide Loyrette Nouel and Linklaters LLP. They are supported by a team of thirteen lawyers and trainee lawyers. As litigators recognised throughout their profession, they assist public and private companies, banks, financial institutions and insurance companies – as well as their executives – in all proceedings they are facing. With wide experience of emergency, complex, cross-border and multi-jurisdictional proceedings, as well as in negotiating settlement agreements, the team assists its clients both in France and internationally, and with the benefit of privileged relations with counterpart law firms on all continents. Practice areas are: white-collar crime, compliance (AMLFT and anti-corruption programmes, related M&A due diligence), regulatory and internal investigations, regulatory disputes in front of all independent administrative authorities including the French Anticorruption Agency, civil and commercial litigation as well as crisis and reputational injury management.
