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.

French contract law

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.

Our French avocat Hervé Blatry, has extensive experience in the French courts. He can advise you on both contentious and non-contentious issues on a wide range of contracts. We are experienced in resolving French legal disputes. Hervé speaks both French and English fluently and we’ll also provide English translations of any relevant documents if you need us to. We can also help you to set up a business in France. Our services include:

  • house sale and purchase
  • commercial property sale and purchase
  • residential leases
  • commercial leases
  • construction contracts 
  • mortgages
  • farming agreements 
  • contracts for the sale of goods 
  • distribution agreements
  • setting up of companies (statutes) 
  • sales of shares.
