Business contracts

Dreyfus helps you to draft contracts related to your business development such as commercial, franchise, distribution, partnership, advertising, and confidentiality agreements.

Commercial Agreements

The purpose of commercial contracts is to supervise and secure business activities and the resulting commercial relations. Commercial agreements include a  multitude of contracts, governed by special rules that must be observed.

Franchising Agreements

The franchising agreement establishes the commercial relationship within which a franchisor transfers the know-how to a franchisee, as well as the right to use the distinctive signs and intellectual property rights attached to them. This contract sets out the practical and financial terms and conditions for the franchisee’s use of the trade name, trademark, licenses, graphic design, visual identity, and patents.

Disribution Agreements

The purpose of a distribution agreement is to establish an arrangement between a supplier and an intermediary, the distributor, whose role is to sell the supplier’s products or services.

Partnerships Agreements

The commercial partnership contract is a form of commercial agreement concluded between independent partners. Such an agreement establishes a participatory decision-making process, through horizontal relationships. In this way, the resources and strengths of each party are pooled to achieve a shared common goal and interest.

Advertising Agreements

The advertising agreement governs the relationship between an advertiser and an advertising agency or intermediary who is entrusted, for a fixed price, with the production and distribution of an advertisement. This contract is essential for the development of your company as well as for the visibility of your company and its products or services.

Confidentiality Agreements

The implementation of your project involves a vast amount of work and investment. As a result, some information should remain confidential. During negotiations with third parties, the drafting of a confidentiality agreement provides real added value in order to protect this sensitive information. It avoids the disclosure or use of valuable information.
