Event law

CLERC AVOCATS advises event organisers, including sporting (tennis, racing, cycling, golf) or musical events (festivals, etc.), as well as exhibition and conference centres.


We have largely contributed to the organisation of nearly fifteen tall ships events in Rouen and Brest since 1987, as well as in Dunkirk, Toulon and Barcelona in 2013, each of these events bringing together several million people. We also assist our clients in the legal set-up of sports clubs.


In these cases, CLERC AVOCATS assists its clients in the drafting and/or negotiation of:

  • land control documentation;
  • by-laws and regulations;
  • financing contracts;
  • partnership contracts;
  • rental contracts with exhibitors;
  • contracts of carriage/charter;
  • employment contracts;
  • volunteer contracts;
  • insurance contracts…

CLERC AVOCATS also assists its clients in the protection of their names/trademarks and in the resolution of their disputes.
