Tips & Strategies
French company law gives the project owner the option between different corporate structures that must be adapted to the aspects of a particular project.
The most commonly used companies:
• Simplified joint stock company (SAS) • Limited liability company (SARL) • Public limited company (SA)
But there are other types of companies that may be better suited for more complex legal arrangements:
• Limited partnership • General partnership • Economic interest grouping.

Adapted legal tools
A company requires legal assistance in the setting up and negotiation of commercial contracts which, due to the constant changes being made to our law, become more complex every day.
Thus, in the event of the conclusion or renewal of a commercial lease, the assignment of a lease right, or even a sub-let, these must, to guarantee the legal security of the parties and avoid legal proceedings, be drawn up by a professional in commercial law.
LEXIATEAM, your lawyer specialising in commercial and business law in Montpellier (34), can assist you in the drafting and negotiation of all your commercial contracts, whether French or international: partnerships, joint ventures, distribution agreements, industrial or intellectual property licences, provision of services, brokerage contracts, etc.
French law has legal tools to help companies or businesses experiencing financial difficulties. For example, a court-ordered receivership or safeguard procedure initiated in due time will result in blocking the right of certain creditors to sue, thus allowing the company to keep its customers and maintain its payroll.
