In a context of economic and technological change, there is a strong desire both in France and in Europe to re-balance power between companies and consumers. Hence consumer law is becoming increasingly important. The new regulatory framework in force - which in France is determined mainly by the Consumer Law - imposes greater vigilance. Whatever your sector and your field of activity, you must adapt some of your practices to the new rules before marketing or promoting your products or services to consumers. Apart from being a necessity, meeting all these obligations ensures a significant competitive advantage.
Our dedicated team comprises 12 lawyers who specialise in these issues and are familiar not only with specific French regulations but also the EU framework in which you operate. They advise and assist you with all your issues, having a wealth of experience in a variety of fields such as FMCG, telecommunications, agri-food and the pharmaceutical industry. They cover a very wide sphere of activity: sales promotions (games/competitions, lotteries, premium sales, self-liquidating premiums, price reduction announcements, loyalty programmes, specific regulations applicable to banking sectors, alcoholic drinks, tobacco, etc.); advertising regulations (untruthful or misleading advertising, comparative advertising, French language, authorisation prior to advertising, etc.); fraud regulation (product labelling, measurement control, deception, etc.) and specific regulations (dangerous products, nutritional allegations, etc.); regulation of consumer information (advertising of prices and information on products or services, drafting of notes to the consumer, etc.); regulation of abusive clauses; regulation of distance selling and other sundry regulations: abuse of weakness, product bundling, forced sales or shipments, sales, liquidation, etc.
