Business cases

  • Joint ventures
    One of our long term listed retailer clients, regularly asks us to set up joint ventures with its main franchisees, in order to enable them to create and develop groups of franchised shops and, later, to find a liquidity for their stakes in the joint ventures. Our client thus benefits from its franchisees’ dynamism, while controlling its own network development.
  • Taking control over a distribution network
    For many years, we have been assisting one of our clients with a comfortable cash position and which regularly increases his range of activities, in his acquisitions in France and abroad. We help him in progressively taking control of his international distribution network through joint ventures set up with its currently independent distributors.
  • Litigation on share sale price
    A client who acquired successive stakes in a business, the price of which was determined by a financial formula, needed legal assistance during an ad hoc national litigation procedure consecutive to this formula. We worked closely with a very reputed audit firm because the litigation was based on the interpretation of complex accounting rules (depreciation in particular).
