Business Litigation

Through a pragmatic and operational approach, our lawyers assist their clients daily by providing legal advice and undertaking litigation work.

They are involved from the stage of negotiation and drafting of contracts (commercial agency, distribution, franchise, partnership ...), and in the assessment of judicial risks in the event of termination of contracts, termination of business relationships or behaviours likely to fall under competition restrictive business practices or unfair or prohibited practices (staff poaching, enticing away customers...). Our lawyers also advise clients on the compliance of trade practices with the regulations in force.
