Our answers to your questions about our firm: the regulatory with Jean-Sébastien Mariez, partner
In an environment of abounding regulations, how do you help your clients see things clearly and anticipate legislative developments?
We support our customers with identifying the regulatory issues that prove critical for their business model, by closely following the arrival of new regulations and developments in the existing legal framework. For example, we worked on the Internet regulation with the «fake news» law and recently on the law against hate material online. In another area, we contributed to drafting the Olympic Law to adapt French legislation for hosting the Paris Olympic Games in 2024 in a variety of areas, such as business law, public law, international law, sports law, trademark law, employment law, criminal law, company law, construction law, etc.
How do your lawyers engage in the legal debate?
Through the contributions they make to various professional, academic or institutional think tanks, our lawyers are directly involved in the issues that drive economic actors. For instance, this year we helped set up a think tank on funding renewable energy through the Plateforme Verte [Green Platform] Association. We were actively engaged in discussions on the legal framework of artificial intelligence and involved in the structural changes to the media landscape and the complex issue of protecting French interests under extra-territorial laws.
