Areas of Focus:

VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM offers advice on all types of issue that may be encountered.

At the beginning of the lease, VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM can help you draft your commercial lease, scrutinising the choice of heads of term.

During the term of the lease, VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM offer assistance in the context of rent adjustment or indexation procedures and in amending contracts to bring them into line with the provisions of the Pinel Law.

If need be, VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM can defend you in litigation :

Recession, bankruptcy, sometimes brutal competition and nit-picking regulations are all risks that entrepreneurs face on a daily basis, putting them in difficult situations – unfair competition, unpaid debts, non-compliance issues, disputes with banks or service providers, and so on.

This is why VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM offers clients a team of professionals who can intervene both amicably (conciliation or mediation) or before the courts and courts of appeal.
