A medium-size company in the field B-to-B e-commerce reports on its current cooperation in French business law


GETTYGO is a German trading firm in the automotive sector and has been active on the German market since 2006, on the Austrian market since 2008 and on the French market since 2012.

Berton & Associés has accompanied us since 2010 with all kinds of legal services: in order to prepare ourselves for the French market, we had to choose the right corporation form for our business; we had to find a tax consultant, an auditor and a bank in France, as well as premises for our business in Strasbourg. As we were not familiar with the specific aspects of labor law in a socialist economic system such as France, we needed continuous legal assistance with the drafting and control of employment contracts.

Berton & Associés even helped us to find premises in a beautiful old building in the center of Strasbourg and assisted us with the conclusion of the commercial lease agreement.

We therefore had a perfectly organized start on the French market and have already topped our sales goals in our first business year.

Thanks to the cooperation with Berton & Associés, we were able to set up a successful and market-oriented business in France with a staff that only spoke German.

Besides the competent and friendly counseling in German for the German management of our company and in French for our French managers in Strasbourg, Berton & Associés is also available at all times for short consultations in daily business.”
