Public Law

France

The different forms of state intervention and, more generally, intervention by the national or local public sector in the economy are covered by public law.

Irrespective of the size of your business, whether you are a non-profit organisation or part of the public sector, we can advise you and defend you in any matter relating to public law.
For any public law issues or issues falling within other legal areas, such as tax implications, our highly technical team can offer you multi-disciplinary support, oriented towards the implementation of appropriate solutions.

With 10 associates including 4 partners, our specialists can assist you in all areas of public business law and public property law. We can help you respond to calls for tenders from public and private buyers and we can assist public sector organisations with their outsourcing policies, their implementation and their financing. We can also advise public authorities and their associated entities on the reorganisation of their intervention methods. We can assist you with knowing and understanding industry regulations applicable to you and your negotiations with regulators. We can help make your building projects possible in a climate where urban and environmental rules and land control (in the private and public sector) are becoming increasingly complex. We can also help you optimise costs: our work concerns the set-up of such operations, such as drafting and negotiating any related contract documents. Finally, with confirmed litigation experience in all public law disciplines, we can represent you, whether you are a claimant or a defendant, in all types of litigation before administrative, judicial, financial and European courts.
