French contract law

French contract laws differ to those in the UK - so if you're living, working or doing business in France, it pays to seek advice from a French lawyer.

For a country that’s so close to the UK, the legal system in France is very different. So if you’re doing business or buying property on the other side of the channel, you’re sure to need expert legal advice sooner or later.

How we can help you

Our French avocat Hervé Blatry, is on hand to guide you through the French system. Hervé had extensive experience in the French courts before coming to the UK. So he can advise you on both contentious and non-contentious issues with a wide range of contracts concerning property in France, for example

  • Sale and purchase
  • Lease
  • Construction contracts 
  • Mortgages
  • Farming agreements

We can also help to smooth the way for those doing business in France, advising on contracts for the sale of goods, distribution agreements and the setting up of companies (statutes) and sales of shares.

How we work

When you talk to Hervé about your French legal issues, he’ll explain what action you need to take and help to get things moving for you. He’ll guide you through everything; from drafting and negotiating new contracts to agreement and signing.

Hervé can also advise about enforcement action that can be taken if existing contracts are not being honoured. You’ll be pleased to know that although Hervé qualified in France, he’s completely bilingual, so he’ll talk to you in a language you’ll understand! We’ll also provide English translations of any relevant documents if you need us to. (In some cases, a professional translator may be used for lengthy documents.)
