Advice with the accent on France

We established our French law team in the City of London specifically to meet the needs of French businesses looking to invest or export to the UK and to provide legal services to UK companies doing business in the French-speaking world.

Our team will support you with their comprehensive understanding of the legal, commercial and cultural environments of both France and the UK. We can offer our full range of legal services in French and we can introduce you to our wide network of French contacts, who will provide their specialist advice.

Ready to help, whether it’s business or personal

We bring a wealth of knowledge on cross-border issues, to give you informed, practical specialist advice on investment coming into or out of the UK. Our experience includes:

  • business acquisitions, mergers and disposals
  • company migration and employment law
  • commercial contracts and property purchases
  • intellectual property and international infringement of rights
  • debt collection and arbitration.

If you’re an individual looking to expand into the UK, we can help with legal advice on your personal tax, immigration, estate planning and succession.

Comfortably familiar with both cultures

We have been working on Franco-British matters since 1997 and are recognised by Chambers Global legal directory. Sherrards is a corporate member of the French Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain. Several members of our French team are also active in a range of organisations involved with the Franco-British community in the UK.

Turning Brexit to your advantage

We published the Export for Growth guide aimed at businesses keen to exploit opportunities available through international trade, in collaboration with the UK Government’s Department for International Trade (DIT), formerly UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).
