Commercial Contracts

The firm has built an experienced team of lawyers who focus on cross-border transactions and investments, including sales and commercial contracts (agency, distribution, franchising), contractual or equity joint ventures, IPR and IT agreements, real estate, sale and purchase of business assets, banking and financing agreements, setting-up of foreign subsidiaries and branches.

Such transactions often require multidisciplinary expertise including contractual, corporate, tax, IP, employment, immigration, antitrust and litigation/arbitration, in different countries and in different languages.

Based on its ideal location in the Lake Geneva region as a hub of international banking, multinational headquarters, trading companies, international organizations and foundations, the firm has developed unique skills in providing a full set of services in relation to international contracts and trade. This allows us to offer flexible and business-oriented legal engineering and implementation of transactions and investments, ranging from the assessment of opportunities and risks to the proper structuring and execution of the transaction.

Moreover, by virtue of the high level of activity in Geneva related to shipping, raw materials trading and the purchase and sale of commercial and private vessels, the Commercial Trade team of Python has developed substantial expertise in matters related to shipping, maritime and commodities trade. We handle cargo claims, charter party disputes, collateral management agreements, vessel purchase and sales transactions, vessel registrations and CMR claims for domestic and international road and rail carriage.
