The law office of Gerard PICOVSCHI consists of several partners and associates, all experienced in different fields of law.
The aim of the partners and associates of the firm is to unify their different fields and practice areas in order to enable their international and European clients and partners to do business in Europe, namely by creating accurate legal structures and by optimizing their performances in reducing tax and social security costs.
In this respect, three principal characteristics make this firm both exceptional and efficient.
Firstly, through its international structure and practice areas, the firm has unique knowledge of company policies and their need to internationalize activities. In fact, the law firm continuously holds the opinion that realistic success of a company implies and necessitates a global expansion of its activities.
Thus, our firm, owing to its experience and knowledge of foreign markets and company policies, is able to explain to a company or business structure how to cross its natal boarders and introduce its policies and goals into the European market.
This is done by studying and analyzing the internal functioning of the company’s business affairs as well as its policies, and then demonstrating how these policies can not only be commercially adapted to the European or French markets, but also harmoniously merged with its international aims and policies established by the managers and directors.
Secondly, the firm succeeds in applying these policies through its particular and unique know-how of European, International and French business law.
This is done by offering the appropriate solutions to the most important challenges in global business: minimizing costs and maximizing the efficiency of operations.
Thus, for example, our European business department knows exactly how to create the most adapted legal structure allowing the most limited liability of its shareholders.
It consults companies as to how to substantially reduce its social security costs by organizing their work force and remunerating its staff and managers in a manner that will stimulate their interest in promoting the company’s business.
This department is experienced in establishing a local and cost efficient sales force that will be highly motivated to expand the sales of the company’s goods and services all over the world and to distribute them in Europe and in the world markets.
We also know how to create particular contractual relationships with this sale force that will allow the company to control their commercial operations.
