In an increasingly open and multi-faceted world, companies are faced with a multiplication of relationships and contracts with their customers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and other partners. In order to draw up an effective contractual scheme adapted to their situation, it is therefore imperative for these companies to take into account the rules applicable to their sector of activity, as well as the commercial practices in place.

The firm offers them support from the pre-contractual period to the negotiation and drafting of the contract, and can assist the clients in the event of pre-litigation or litigation.
