Bastille Day Newsletter 2018

Happy 2018 Bastille Day! Lawyers at NAVACELLE thought you might be interested in reviewing a selection we made of noticeable events which occurred in France in the fields of corporate criminal liability, criminal procedure and compliance over the past year so we put together our second Bastille Day Newsletter!

We hope you will find some use to it and will be happy to answer any inquiry you might have in one of the five languages we speak.

Best wishes,
