Franco-British legal services
If you are a French business or individual looking to establish yourself the UK, you need lawyers who understand the French legal system as well as English law.
At Cripps, we have over 30 years’ experience advising on Franco-British matters. Our Franco-British legal team includes dual-qualified, bi-lingual lawyers who have helped numerous French businesses and entrepreneurs to successfully establish themselves in the UK. Because we know the French law as well as the English law, we are able to explain the differences, potential pitfalls and provide pragmatic solutions.
Whether you are setting up a new venture, or expanding an existing one, we can help you in all matters ranging from company law, commercial agreements, employment law, intellectual property, finding and developing suitable premises and mergers and acquisitions.
Owing to the size and breadth of our team, we can also help with all aspects of your private life. Our private client teams deal with complex matters involving Wills and estates, family and divorce, employment, residential property and disputes.
We understand that as well as the legal differences, there are language and cultural barriers to overcome and our bilingual lawyers and support team are here to bridge the gap, with the utmost discretion and integrity.
We have an established network in the Franco-British community both in the UK and France who we can connect you with, as well as trusted advisers in other jurisdictions to ensure you receive a consistently high level of service.
