The Tax and Regulations Committee of the French Chamber is glad to announce its next seminar “Legal Issues in Development of E-commerce Business in EU Market” on Thursday, October 17. Meet the law office Uryu & Itoga to learn more about setting up an e-commerce business in the European Union’s market. 

Among the various business models allowing Japanese companies to sell products and services to the EU market (namely, by setting up physical entities in the EU or by engaging distributors or agents, each involving serious legal concerns), “e-commerce” sounds like a fascinating alternative for a safer but more efficient business.

Uryu & Itoga will discuss some practical notes, with emphasis on (i) data privacy; (ii) platform’s regulations; and (iii) online dispute resolution, together with a comparison between Japan and EU.
