our business from
a legal standpoint »

What can we do
for Yasmine and Antoine ?

I want to put my product/service on the market and/or online (my e-business); organize a distribution network for my product/service on a large scale, in the form of a network. How does franchising, licensing, or becoming a distributor work?

We know how to listen to you with simplicity and speak to you with the same simplicity.
There are many solutions to present your goods and/or services to the market, different types of contracts depending on whether you want to do BtoB or BtoC marketing; sometimes it’s as simple as drafting solid general terms and conditions of sale, sometimes it’s more sophisticated.

You should feel that you are listened to, that is really important. You should feel that your voice is heard that we understand your concerns and that we implement what you really want, to the extent possible in light of the context of your case.

I have a problem with a supplier who did not deliver the right product, or his/her computer system does not work well, he/she has put me in great difficulty with my business, what can I do? With a product in equipment leasing and it does not work properly, with a customer who does not pay.

For all such cases, it is first necessary to define a strategy by carefully examining the equation, the strengths and weaknesses of the case, and the solvency of the parties. And then we choose how to go about it.  It often starts with a formal notice (a demand letter) that allows us to gauge the level of opposition we are dealing with; and then we file an action to achieve the desired result.
We often see these types of scenarios and not only do we have the knowledge of the Law but we also have extensive experience with real-life cases. We’ve dealt with hundreds of them, as you can see here. The strategy is always chosen to achieve the quickest result at the lowest cost.

I want to work with a commercial agent, how do I do that?

It is important to ask the right questions: which geographical sector, which commissions depending on whether the sale is made directly by the commercial agent or simply on his/her sector, what are the consequences on his/her contract when online sales are used?  Be aware of the applicable status, in particular the commercial agent’s right to a clientele compensatory payment, etc. We will draw up the contract according to your wishes and in compliance with the mandatory rules applicable in this area.

My client/supplier has just abruptly broken off an established business relationship, what can I do?

We have to move fast. Secure evidence of such abrupt termination.  The Law provides very effective tools (L442-1 of the French Commercial Code).

I drafter my general terms and conditions myself, by going on the internet and looking at what others are doing, but I'm not sure it's right? And I don't know where and when to get these general terms and conditions of sale or services signed?

We are familiar with our clients’ various business environments, be it industry, digital, automotive, e-commerce, and commerce in general. Drafting general terms and conditions of sale or services seems simple but, in fact, there are quite a few subtleties that should not be overlooked because each activity is much more different than we think. Besides, they are absolutely useless if they are not used properly.

I need to draft contracts that are complicated because there are people involved in all directions, can you take care of that for me?

We want to make sure we understand what you do, and even if it’s complicated, we always manage to do it.

The law is very creative and there is no problem without a solution: we know how to use all the tools at our disposal, to meet your needs as closely as possible, so that your project can get off the ground. We love innovation and we are bold. Trusts, leasing agreements, floor-plan etc., all these complex contracts can be original and creative tools.

I want to make sure my insurance policy is adequate for my business; can you help me?

Yes, it is very important for your safety. You need to match your client’s legal arsenal to your insurance coverage to make sure they complement each other well. We can work with your insurance company in order to achieve this goal.

My former employees, my competitors in general, are clearly competing unfairly with me because they use shocking information or processes, I want to react.

You are right.  If competition is free, it needs to be fair. If not, action must be taken.

Here again, we have developed a great deal of expertise, particularly in searching for evidence of the wrongdoings conducted by your ill-intentioned competitor. In addition, our knowledge of how companies and markets operate enables us to define prejudices that are often difficult to assess.
