Our practice

Tossens Goldman Gonne has proven expertise in various areas, such as distribution, consultancy, partnership agreements, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, and securities regulation.

This competence is applied both to the negotiation and drafting of complex commercial contracts and to the resolution of disputes.

Combining the roles in negotiation accompaniment and in the setup of various structures, and preventing or managing litigation, allow for wise pre-emptive advice and a better appreciation of risks. The experience gained in both transactional and arbitration practices also helps to identify the most appropriate structure and the necessary precautions for each case scenario, as well as the arguments most likely to convince and the dossier which best supports it.
