The firm

Endrös-Baum Associés – EBA specialises in international and Franco-German work

Endrös-Baum Associés, EBA for short, deals with the questions, plans, problems, projects, difficulties and visions of international enterprises and companies with interests in France. We do so promptly, efficiently, purposefully and pragmatically, at a reasonable cost. This enables you to conduct your business transactions and legal proceedings free of legal risks or in full knowledge of the risks involved.

International companies operating in France often encounter communication difficulties. These may arise from language differences, or from different cultures, or from the sometimes substantial differences in substantive and procedural law.

Detailed knowledge of the foreign legal system and an understanding of linguistic and cultural differences are necessary if you want to have businesslike and efficient dealings and well-organised international negotiations with French counterparts. This applies in particular to intra-company communication between parent and subsidiary, to entering into business agreements and to negotiating contracts, where it may be necessary for lawyers to intervene as intermediaries.

Endrös-Baum Associés is the notional continuation in Paris of a legal tradition now in its third generation, starting with the attorney Justin Baum in Aschaffenburg in the year 1928, followed by the attorneys Edith Endrös-Baum and Dr. Herbert Endrös in Munich.
