Commercial law, contract law, competition and distribution

Our commercial law team helps our French and foreign clients with all regulatory issues related to commercial agreements and competition, as well as in drafting commercial agreements, that the e practice and regulations make more and more technical, both in and out of distribution networks.

Whether clients need general terms of sale, commercial cooperation agreements, distribution, concession, supply,  agency or franchising agreements, our lawyers are experts in legal techniques applied in combination with an industry approach of many sectors, including agribusiness, agrochemicals and chemicals, luxury goods, financial services, online retail, etc. This knowledge also enables them to refine their critical analyses while conducting acquisition audits, where all the aspects of “business relationships” often constitute a leading asset.

The team also provides assistance in the drafting and negotiation of commercial leases for our clients’ retail operations. With this skill combined with the negotiation of supply and distribution contracts our clients benefit from end-to-end assistance for the opening of their stores. This assistance is also provided in associations with the teams in charge of trademarks and brands, mergers and acquisitions, corporate and employment law aspects.

The team also provides an assistance to our clients before French courts and in arbitration.
