Control of foreign investments in France

DELCADE, first rate expertise for foreign investors

DELCADE’s lawyers, experts in competition law, regularly assist foreign investors in their operations subject to control procedures in France.

The mechanisms for controlling foreign investments have become more complex in recent years. They now affect multiple strategic sectors of activity such as energy, defence, technology and information systems, the health sector, etc.

Our lawyers have a thorough understanding of the French institutional framework. They share their inside knowledge of French administration procedures with their clients, in order to help them succeed in their projects.

Foreign investment control: Continuous monitoring of case laws

The strong development of foreign investments in Europe over the last few years, as well as the economic crisis linked to Covid, have led European member states to strengthen their foreign investment control mechanisms. We closely monitor legislative developments to assist our clients in implementing their legal and regulatory obligations.

Comprehensive knowledge of sensitive and strategic sectors of activity

We are experts in control mechanisms and have significant experience in conducting these authorisation procedures before the competent authorities. We guide our international clients throughout their operations, in order to secure and successfully achieve their investment project.
