Assemblee nationalThe ‘Florange law’ was designed to reclaim the real economy in an attempt to shore up France’s  interests against hostile takeovers.

In our latest snapshot Lionel Benatia, Director Public Affairs and Crisis Management at FTI Consulting in Paris and Soledad Gomez, Director in the Competition practice in FTI Consulting’s Brussels office provide an insight into application of the law in practice and explore its real impact on the market and implications for business.
