France has the world’s sixth-largest economy by nominal figures and the world’s ninth largest economy by PPP figures, and the French capital Paris is the major hub for business into and out of the country.

But where should you be based? Should you join over 1,500 other businesses in the 400-acre La Défense, one of the world’s largest business districts? Or should you be closer to your customers in other parts of the city? Or even on the other side of Paris altogether?

Your choice of arrondissement is likely to be influenced by other factors as well such as cost, transport links, and access to human capital – all of which we are able to advise on.

If you or your company are looking to open an office in Paris or set up a company to serve the French market then you have come to the right place – with the right combination of market knowledge and industry experience we can help you get set up in the most efficient way possible so that you can be serving your French clients and partners in a matter of weeks rather than months.
