Our Latest Cases

International Business Law

In the pre-litigation management of a case, we enabled a client, a French company, to recover all of its receivables from a company based in Tunisia, following invoices that remained unpaid within the framework of duly executed sales contracts.

Intellectual Property

We proceeded for a French client to the filing and registration of its word and semi-figurative trademarks with the French National Institute of Industrial Property and the competent authorities in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. A note on the advisability of a European filing at the EUIPO had been made beforehand.

Group Reorganization

We assisted a client in the restructuring of its group in France, with the transformation of a SARL into an SAS and with the sale of its shares to a holding company. A second subsidiary of the holding company was created to develop the group's activities. A tax consultancy helped to choose the best structure and to secure the restructuring operations, with an expatriation of the manager to a Middle Eastern country.

Dispute Resolution

In the context of a dispute between shareholders of a French company, we intervened as an aid to negotiation between the parties to allow the amicable exit of one of the shareholder.

Commercial Leases

We have assisted foreign clients, owners of apartments rented as tourist residences, in the termination of their commercial leases with the management company. The clients were able to recover the use of their properties.
