BIA Avocats has developed international experience in helping foreign companies to set up in France as well as assisting French companies wishing to expand their activity outside France.

More specifically with regard to Franco-German relations, BIA Avocats helps German companies with all the legal services they need to locate operations in France, and to develop their business in the French market.

Thanks to their training and experience, the lawyers in charge of these files, all bilingual, are completely familiar with the economic, social and cultural environments of both countries, which enables them to fully understand and address the needs of our clients.
