Drawing from our combined consulting and litigation abilities, we act as early as possible to identify and limit potential litigation or to anticipate them when inevitable in order to effectively defend our clients’ interests when negotiating or applying their rights in compliance with contracts.
We commit ourselves right from the preliminary phase (audits, negotiations, preparations, invitations to tender, etc.) to the implementation phase of our clients’ contractual projects, i.e. civil and commercial contracts (drafting agreements, executive contracts and defining the general terms and conditions of sales).
We are also consulted for pre-litigious issues regarding contract interpretation or implementation difficulties encountered in France and internationally (distribution, concession, franchising), whereby we ensure that we strictly adhere to the set terms until cessation of conditions (contract termination, termination of commercial working relations).
To address the demands of our corporate and professional clients, we have gained tremendous strength in matters pertaining to professional leases, mixed-use professional and residential, commercial leases, finance leases and other forms of leasing.
We provide timely assistance to clients from the initial phases of a leasing contract, in which we accompany them during negotiations, enlightening them on the scope of the proposed clauses. We also handle the contract drafting and oversee the implementation phase (revision, distribution of service charges, subleasing, leasebacks independent or inclusive of a business transfer) or at the end of a lease (notices, non-contentious terminations). We offer reactive and constructive assistance, working in close collaboration with all parties involved (lessors, tenants, intermediaries, financers, co-owners’ representative, experts, etc).
Our commitment to devising efficient agreements involves backing them with warranties or guarantees (collateral, mortgage, retention of title clause, etc.) right from the very beginning in order to establish the most “airtight” contracts possible for our clients.
To this end, we work in tandem with other professionals with proven track records (notaries, bailiffs, foreign legal correspondents, private detectives, experts in IT investigations, etc.).
In matters pertaining to contract liability, including negligence, we help clients weigh the principles at stake during the exercise of their professional and personal activities, and defend and represent them in a wide range of fields including banking, investments, disputes between neighbours, architectural and construction contracts, environmental damage, events organisation, etc.
