Guillaume Krafft Rivedroit Avocat Paris

Partner, co-founder and lawyer


Lawyer at the Paris Bar since 2001
I try to take an approach to cases that is both combative and pragmatic, which I'm convinced is always in the best interest of my clients.

Guillaume Krafft is a dispute settlement lawyer with a passion for what he does best: handling litigation cases of all kinds. He puts finding the right solution for his client at the heart of what he does, whether in or out of court. He approaches his work with a strategic, and very often international, outlook.


Having spent a number of years practising abroad, Guillaume was able to hone his area of expertise: complex, international, and sometimes even multi-jurisdictional litigation. One of his cases led to Rivedroit being accredited by the World Bank. Guillaume's work primarily covers Africa and the OHADA.
