Allen & Overy advises McDonald’s in respect of a French “public interest judicial agreement” (CJIP)

Allen & Overy has advised McDonald’s in respect of a “public interest judicial agreement” (Convention Judiciaire d'Intérêt Public - “CJIP”).

On 16 June 2022, the Judicial Court of Paris validated the “public interest judicial agreement” (CJIP) negotiated between McDonald’s and the French National Financial Prosecutor’s Office (Parquet National Financier - “PNF”) terminating the investigation that the Prosecutor had launched. The corresponding legal proceedings have therefore been withdrawn in exchange for payment of the public interest fine set out in the CJIP agreement.

The Allen & Overy team in Paris (Denis Chemla, Hippolyte Marquetty, Partners, and Paul Fortin, Counsel) assisted McDonald’s on the criminal law and tax law aspects.
