Reputed for its expertise, the lawyers’ association is keen to establish a direct relationship between its clients and the lawyers in charge of the files. As a matter of fact, our firm has the expertise to address all types of issues encountered by an undertaking, including incorporation, the acquisition or divestiture of a company, the recovery of a debt, management of a class action or the preparation of contracts or Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA).
An international business law firm:
Files with an international dimension account for a significant share of our activities and, for the purposes of this work, we can draw on a network of foreign counterparts, who meet our requirements, in the form of the Concerto international network.
Our lawyers can thus rely on special contacts in the member countries of the Council of Europe or the Maghreb to assist them with their cases.
