Commercial agreements are present in every law system around the world, whether or not they are written.
Agreements are at the center of trade, the respect of validity is therefore vital.
Like every country, French law has some particularities, especially concerning validity conditions.
Enter France has developed a strong French contract review practice for foreign companies entering a commercial agreement with a French company, therefore being subject to French law.
Legal strategists may reach the conclusion that French law is not the best legal option and some agreements may be changed to a different country’s law, if French public order rules (i.e. mandatory rules in France) allow it.
French contract review may be limited to reviewing the agreement, focusing on the main clauses such as, liability, price, payment, termination and audit of your French counterpart (use of our financial & legal database). Ultimately, our business strategists may negotiate the financial terms of the agreement, if need be.
