International business law

Both of the LTO partners have worked in and with countries in the Persian Gulf and North African countries. Thanks to these experiences, they continue to support their French and European clients with business in these countries or who wish to establish themselves in these countries.

LTO accompanies its clients in their international entrepreneurial projects, whether it is a question of setting up or reviewing distribution, supply, sales or service contracts with foreign partners or setting up a real network with entities capitalistically attached to the French entity.

LTO has expertise in customs law, coordinates with the Office of Control of the Exchange of Dual-Use Goods to obtain the necessary authorizations, if any, and proposes, if necessary, compliance with the Uniform Customs and Practice of the International Chamber of Commerce.

LTO also provides its clients with legal notes, opinions and memoranda answering questions on compliance with legal and regulatory obligations governing export and import activities.

LTO also has particular expertise in the field of economic sanctions, provided by its partner, Sophie Gabillot. In this respect, in addition to advising LTO’s clients on how to bring their projects into compliance with the regulations in force, LTO represents companies or NGOs before the public authorities, national and international jurisdictions on issues related to the application of laws and regulations on economic sanctions.

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.
