French Course for the Legal Sector

Semantics enjoys the client loyalty of many of the largest and most successful law firms in Belgium. Whichever area of law you practice we can provide the course that directly addresses your needs. Whether coaching a new intake of graduates or teaching one-to-one we can provide specific solutions to maximize performance.

Law is a field wrought with complexities. For a client experiencing difficulties it can be impenetrable.  The ability to communicate these complexities in ‘layman’s’ language is essential.

Confident negotiation skills are crucial in all aspects of law. By understanding the nuances of your target language, you can deliver direct and focused arguments to bolster your case and achieve the best outcome.

In addition, and as every law firm knows, it is impossible to provide a first class client service without back-up, and this is where the administrative team comes into their own. Often the first voice a client hears is the lasting impression of your practice a client has. Similarly, accuracy of written documentation is paramount to your company’s success.  By empowering all your personnel with language confidence, you empower your organization.

Whether it is verbal skills, written skills or presentation skills you wish to advance, Semantics has the experience and expertise.
