The law and much more

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.

CARNOTS AVOCATS’ teams support a group specialising in the restoration of historical monuments and a group specialising in eco-tourism, both operating at a national level, to assist them with their projects and their dealings with public bodies (co-contractors) and private ones (competitors, subcontractors, suppliers, etc.)

We have worked on the following cases:


    For more than 25 years, CARNOT AVOCATS’ teams have supported a property developer which has built a number of major apartment complexes along the French Riviera. This assistance has included advice and consultancy services, negotiations, the drafting of contracts and assistance before the courts and the administrative authorities. Their brief has been extended to cover the legal engineering for the launch of a hotel project combined with a thalassotherapy centre.


    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)


    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.
