Dispute resolution

Altij has one of the leading dispute resolution practices in the South West of France, helping clients develop tough and effective pre-litigation and litigation strategies.

Our specialist commercial litigation lawyers ally a strong understanding of the way the French court system works with an appreciation of our clients' business priorities.

We provide pragmatic advice about all aspects and phases of the dispute resolution process, including evaluation of legal risk, alternative dispute resolution strategies and negotiation of settlement agreements, assistance with gathering evidence, advice and representation before the French courts and tribunals, mediation and arbitration assistance and follow-up and enforcement of court decisions.

We understand that a business can suffer serious reputational and commercial damage because of the actions of unscrupulous competitors and we have a particular focus on the French law action of unfair competition (concurrence déloyale).

Our experienced attorneys also regularly assist our clients with debt recovery in France, working closely with bailiffs and the judicial authorities and where necessary assisting with asset seizure processes (saisie) and enforcement of decisions of foreign jurisdictions.
