David Père is a renowned practitioner in business criminal law, criminal law and regulatory litigation.
In business criminal law, he specializes in high-risk, complex cases and has been involved in matters that involve allegations of bribery, money laundering and tax evasion, as well as cybercrime, forgery, and post-acquisition litigation. Given his extensive experience in crisis management, he is available to support clients facing emergency situations caused by allegations or the discovery of a criminal offence, or when a director faces accusations from the police. Indeed, he was one of the first in France to have prepared individuals and companies for the risks of police custody with scenarios delivered in realistic conditions.
David Père is also highly regarded for international criminal law. His international experience enables him to deal with multi-jurisdictional disputes in Europe, Africa and Middle East as well as in the United States.
In addition, he has represented directors and legal entities before administrative authorities (including the Financial Markets Authority), mainly in relation to allegations of insider trading and violations of investment service regulations.
Thanks to his significant judicial experience, he also supports his clients in the implementation of anti-corruption procedures or internal investigations into suspicions of fraud. He has taught business criminal law for several years at University of Paris Ouest Nanterre, and is invited to participate in many conferences in France and abroad, notably on the Sapin II law.
