Commercial contracts

LTO is present alongside companies, both for the drafting and the negotiation of various industrial and commercial contracts and agreements related to their activities, whether they operate in France or abroad. The firm also advises its clients during the execution phase of commercial contracts.

LTO sets up, drafts and negotiates licenses, franchises, distribution, services or transfer of know-how contracts in various fields (automotive, pharmaceutical, catering).

LTO also acts in the fields of competition law and consumer law.

LTO assists its clients, both in consulting and litigation, on all subjects that may impact the implementation and management of commercial relations between professionals or with consumers: from the drafting of confidentiality policies, general terms and conditions of sale, contracts or industrial and commercial agreements, to litigation between suppliers, clients, banks, and also can negotiate transactional protocols.

LTO chooses to have a business-oriented approach in order to best protect the interests of its clients while respecting their market’s and sector’s constraints.

The LTO methodology in 3 steps for the treatment of a file:

  1. A remote or physical meeting to discuss with you the project you are considering or the situation you are encountering
  2. An email providing you with an engagement letter summarizing the identified legal issues and comprising our fee proposal
  3. The accomplishment of the mission entrusted

Fees adapted to each situation

The fees are the financial counterpart of the missions accomplished by lawyers. They are established in full transparency according to the nature and the scope of the mission entrusted by the client and accepted by the law firm.

Depending on the type of case handled by LTO, the fees may be set either on an hourly rate basis (the hourly rate in force which is communicated to the client beforehand), or on a flat rate basis (calculated on the base of the time the law firm expect to spend and taking into consideration the applicable hourly rate). Finally, part of the fees may be calculated on the base of the result obtained (success fee). Under French law, lawyers are not allowed to be paid solely on the base such fees.
