BREXIT PARIS FRANCE
Are you setting up a business in France or moving part of your business to France? The key issues are likely to be:-
- The right trading structure/French company,
- The best tax structure for your business and key employees,
- French employment law and staff contracts,
- French commercial lease of your premises,
- French terms and conditions for your business.
You can deal direct with French professionals though they may not have the experience of cross border transactions and understand how English business people think. We have many years of experience in this market and a team of professionals specialised in the French market and understand how important it is to get this right from the start. The French professionals involved will quickly understand that we know how things work in France which will be to your advantage. Professional rules are different in France to the UK. We act only for you. We can deal with all aspects for you or advise only on specific matters.
We make sure you clearly understand the French position. We take into account any English factors. If something is not right we tell you straight away. We neither pay nor receive any commissions. Everything you receive from us will be in understandable English confirmed in writing. It will be practical and useful.
We check everything thoroughly and have a commercial approach in negotiations. We want to make deals happen but on terms which make it likely your business will succeed. We have years of experience in negotiating contracts in France.
We offer the highest levels of confidentiality which you would expect from a small boutique law firm in the City of London. We do not believe “Chinese Walls” provide adequate protection, so if we are already acting for one of your competitors we simply will not act for you. Your business plans are kept completely confidential.
We can deal with all matters from London. Our experience over many years especially in property matters has taught us that visits to the business site is helpful. We are accustomed to travelling to France regularly and do this at modest cost.
If you plan to recruit locally the position is simpler. If however you will be recruiting in the UK or transferring staff to France the position is more complex. We can deal with the employment law issues for you in England and France. We can also deal with personal issues affecting staff such as Wills and estate planning.
