LEGAL AUDIT : an essential step

The Law N°2016-1547 dated 18 November 2016 modernizing the Justice of XXIst century, and the Reform Ordonnance dated 10 February 2016 have modified French business law.

French companies spontaneously will spend time on studying the impact of the reform on their negotiated contracts, and organize a legal audit.

The objectives of the “P’tit déj VDV” organized on 26 May 2017, at the law firm VDV AVOCATS, consist in describing the impact of the Reform on the negotiating process of the contracts, the items to keep in mind when preparing the negotiation of the contracts and the organization of the legal audit.

By-laws and incorporation of the company : the first steps.

Law is not just a detail.
By-laws, if well negotiated, constitute the skeleton of your company.

Too often, founders of company sign by-laws without being informed about rights and obligations of shareholders and/or managers, importance of capital percentage, impact of matrimonial regime, necessity to negotiate commercial lease, etc.).

Signing by-laws and incorporating a company conducts to the definitive creation of a new individuality, having a personality, and specific rights and obligations. This deserves, without any doubt, some thoughts and a certain time of preparation.

During the “VDV conferences” or “VDV breaks” organized regularly in her law firm, Fabienne van der Vleugel, attorney-at-law since 1996, specialist in company law, takes the time to explain to clients and partners some specific law details that deserve to be known, in order to ease the development of one’s company and avoid tricky situations.

Because all is about preparation and knowledge.
Because… law is supposed to be known.

The next VDV meeting scheduled on 31 March 2017 is dedicated to by-laws.
