Our French practice draws upon the expertise of attorneys in our Corporate & Business Law, Fashion, Intellectual Property, Wealth Planning, Tax, and Immigration groups, and is an integral part of our broader international practice and regional European practice.
Our attorneys have developed a clear understanding of French business and culture through decades of representing French nationals, businesses, and governmental agencies in the United States. Our French practice group members travel frequently to France to foster closer relationships with our clients and other business associates. We see ourselves as a “gateway” and intermediary between our clients and other connections in our professional network beyond the legal sector.
As a mid-sized New York law firm with an international reach, we offer an efficient and cost-effective alternative compared to larger, global firms. Our size allows our French clients to work closely with “their” attorneys at the firm, as they would at home, while at the same time accessing the guidance of specialists in a wide range of legal and business matters.
We represent French clients from various industries, including:
- Fashion and Apparel;
- Hospitality, including food establishments, spas and hotels;
- Real Estate investment, development and leasing;
- Technology, e-commerce, online services, media and software;
- “Green” products such as natural ingredients for cosmetics, personal care products and food flavorings and ingredients.
