Commercial law, competition and distribution

Cornillier Avocats’ experience in drafting contracts in a large number of sectors (IT/telecommunications, manufacturing, distribution, publishing/media, healthcare, etc.) and its knowledge of the various applicable laws allow it to assist companies in structuring their projects, depending on their business model, and to offer them the most appropriate legal solutions.

Relations with partners are not linear. They evolve according to needs and the business sector. The economic environment can also have an impact and lead to a reassessment of these relationships.

Cornillier Avocats provides companies with support in monitoring their commercial relations. The firm can review certain contract clauses or negotiate new contracts with their partners. This monitoring also involves raising awareness of contractual issues among operational staff, particularly through training.

Cornillier Avocats assists companies when they are faced with breaches or poor performance of their obligations by their partners. Our goal is to avoid any deadlock that could jeopardise the company’s business.
