Basic Info

Holfran is an independent, international law firm located in Paris, specialized in business law, with a particular expertise in French-Dutch commercial relations.

Our trilingual lawyers (NL-FR-GB) advise foreign companies and groups – especially from Benelux – active on the French market.

Holfran provides the legal guidance for one-shot relationships in France, or for setting up a more permanent structure in France with potential employees, entering regular business relationships with French business partners, or negotiating and drafting various contracts (purchase/sale, service, lease etc.).

Our lawyers provide, for example, legal advice for securing the appointment of a commercial agent or a distributor in France, and we offer assistance to set up a company or joint venture, to hire employees, or to follow an insolvency procedure.

Holfran can also represent your company before French courts, e.g. in the context of a liability claim for damaged goods during carriage or in the context of a construction project.

With over 25 years of experience in advising foreign companies on French law, Holfran guarantees a pragmatic and transparent approach, which has been valued for years by a loyal clientele of business leaders, legal and operational executives as well as Dutch lawyers.

Holfran’s both partners practiced at the Dutch law firm Loyens & Loeff (in Paris, Amsterdam, and Brussels), before founding Holfran in 2019.
