Supporting you with an effective strategy and a tailored approach

 

Why choose carnot avocats?

Because the sheer diversity of the legal profession and our acquired experience have made us naturally curious and shown us the value of synthesis and supervision.

Because we believe that offering litigation and consultancy services on a separate, fragmented basis is an unnecessary cost for clients, who need strategic support and someone to defend them, all of which we offer.

CARNOT AVOCATS’ teams have helped a listed British company, the UK leader in the distribution of subscriptions for Internet access via satellite, which had no activities in France, to acquire four French companies carrying out similar activities, all of which were in difficulty. On this occasion, the law firm provided advice and information to these successful and fast-growing foreign entrepreneurs concerning the different aspects of the regulations applicable to companies in difficulty. The British company acquired these four businesses in 18 months, and now has a solid base in France from which to continue its growth.

We have worked on the following cases:

  • REAL ESTATE MANAGEMENT AND ASSET VALUATION

    For around a decade, CARNOT AVOCATS’ teams have assisted a property developer with the development of a shopping centre: verification of planning authorisations, construction and insurance -related disputes, change of site manager, establishment and negotiation of leases of all kinds, voluntary and court-imposed cancellations, assistance with the signature of contracts with suppliers of goods and services, voluntary and court-imposed settlement of disputes with neighbours (rights of way, isolation, disturbance)

  • ASSISTING MANAGERS AND OVERCOMING DIFFICULTIES

    For 10 years, CARNOT AVOCATS’ teams supported the manager of a travel agency group whose companies had been forced into insolvency due to international events which had hit its business hard. The support initially concerned the choice and implementation of procedures best suited to the companies’ situations, which ended with sales to a competitor. Next, the law firm assisted the manager concerning the activation of undertakings with respect to sureties by which it was bound and obtained the cancellation of part of these undertakings. The assistance then concerned legal proceedings initiated against the manager, which ended with an acquittal.
