France is one of the most dynamic industrial countries in the European Union and worldwide. The French economy is among the strongest in the world and is also one of the leading ones in the European Union. In Ukraine, French business is represented by companies operating in different sectors of economy, such as: agriculture, automotive, banking and finance, retail, food & drinks, pharmaceutics & life sciences, insurance, energy & renewable energy, luxury, cosmetics, real-estate & construction, mining, engineering, machinery, hospitality, restaurants, etc.

Over 200 French companies, some of them being international industry leaders, have their business in Ukraine.

Arzinger is a Ukrainian law firm deeply involved in the development of the French-Ukrainian relationships through its French network in Ukraine and its Ukrainian network in France.

With a view to providing its clients with high quality services Arzinger takes due regard of mentality and traditions when dealing with foreign clients.

In 2010, to support its French clients and given the dynamics of French investment in Ukraine, Arzinger launched its French Desk headed by Aurélien Mousset, a native French lawyer. By doing so, Arzinger became comfortable and easier to work with for its Francophone clients.  

Over the years, Arzinger’s French Desk has provided legal advice to a number of French companies. Also, Arzinger renders assistance to Ukrainian and Russian companies and individuals operating in France.

The unique combination of Aurélien Mousset’s background of an in-house lawyer in a French international group and Arzinger lawyers’ know-how, expertise and knowledge of the local market enables Arzinger French Desk to offer its Francophone clients excellent legal advisory services with perfect understanding of their needs.

In 2013 Arzinger has become a member of the French-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce (CCIFU). Thus, the French business community recognized Arzinger’s contribution to the development of bilateral relations between France and Ukraine by providing legal services on the day-to-day basis to French companies doing business in Ukraine as well as to Ukrainian companies operating in France.
