Following a career in the private sector and in law firms, Jean-Jacques Uettwiller founded UGGC Avocats – with other lawyers – in 1993.
From the onset, his foremost expertise is the law of company transfers (what some posers call M&A), providing advice or assisting with litigation arising from these transactions, but deals with the legal and tax management of the personal assets of wealthy families and he is involved in arbitration, international in particular.
Jean-Jacques is also involved in professional associations and organizations (ACE…).He is a former member of the Conseil National des Barreaux and of the Conseil de l'Ordre de Paris and is honorary president of the ACE (Association des Avocats Conseils d'Entreprises) and of the UIA (Union Internationale des Avocats).
He is particularly involved in the agri-food and public work sectors, but his job encompasses a much broader area than these sectors. In fact, his practice is both international and multidisciplinary at the same time since it covers international arbitration as well as transactions governed by OHADA law or more traditional transactions of business law.
