Philippe C. Bastian
Philippe C. Bastian spent his childhood in Germany, his youth in France and began a double degree in political science and law at the University of Munich, which he deepened and completed at the Sorbonne in Paris.
He then embarked on an academic career at the Sorbonne's law faculty and worked as a research assistant in a law firm admitted to the French Court of Cassation.
Finally, he settled in Paris as an Avocat à la Cour in order to make more concrete use of the spectrum of his international training. First independently, he later worked in a renowned German-French patent law firm before founding his current law firm, B-Legal, in Paris with a branch office in Munich. Since then he has been cooperating informally with Schindhelm, more recently also officially as Of Counsel of the Paris office of Schindhelm.
As a French lawyer specialising in business and commercial law, he is primarily active in contract, company, distribution, competition and trademark law. In addition, he also advises on labour law and the property law aspects of family and inheritance law.
As a French lawyer specialising in international and European law, he continues to pay particular attention to cross-border private and civil procedure law, with an emphasis on bilateral Franco-German legal relations due to his origins and career.
Philippe C. Bastian also spent more than fifteen years as a private lecturer at the Sorbonne in international private law and comparative law.
