Commercial Law / Contracts

Competent support from all of the Firm's lawyers; drawing up commercial agreements is a customary activity for our Firm.

In the scope of this activity, the LIGNER & ROCHELET Firm has a tailor-made and pragmatic approach. Our role as legal advisors consists in providing the Firm's clients, in addition to skills as jurists, with an understanding of their activity, their company and the technical and economic environment.

Accordingly, we consider that the essential part of added value when drafting commercial agreements consists in replying to our clients' problematic with the objective of legal, material and economic efficiency.
