Commercial law

The Commercial Code of November 5, 1867 was mainly inspired by French law with some important differences, especially with regard to legal liquidation, commercial pledge, pledge of money and pledge securities.

Some discipline, interrelated with commercial law, that arose in European countries pursuant to the Community law, did not develop in Monaco since Community law does not apply.

However this statement must be tempered  since, by means of treaties entered by Monaco, Community law may be de facto applicable in the Principality.

For example, there are no specific competition law regulations, therefore caution is required when drafting a contract. 

We assist our clients in negotiating and drafting commercial agreements and we represent  them in litigation or arbitration. We can also assist our clients during mediation sessions.
