Business - Disputes - Arbitration
The context and needs
The setting up, operating and developing of companies is governed by increasing complex legislation which requires expertise and assistance from consultants specialising in the various areas of business law, capable of ensuring optimum security to companies.
In case of difficulty, the manager must always demonstrate responsiveness and set out a strategy, possibly a legal one, making it possible to best safeguard the interests of the company (securing its receivables and supplies, securing guarantees, preserving its rights, acting against unfair competition, etc.).
