Osborne Clarke advised Dutch fashion brand Scotch & Soda on the acquisition of an ongoing business from a first-rank national retail group and the negotiation of a new commercial lease with the landlord for commercial premises located in Besançon, France.
Located in the historic center of Besançon at 24 place de la Revolution, the shop has an area of approx. 156 square meters.

Born in Amsterdam, Scotch & Soda celebrates the free spirit of its birth city. Endlessly optimistic, the brand champions individuality, authenticity and the power of self-expression to create the unique – an attitude reflected in its designs. The Scotch & Soda collections include menswear, womenswear, kidswear, denim, eyewear, fragrances and accessories, occupying a unique space in today’s global fashion landscape. Collections can currently be found in 271 freestanding stores across Europe, North America, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Australia, as well as in 7,000 doors in some of the world’s biggest cities, including New York, London, Milan and Paris.

The Besançon opening is part of Scotch & Soda's expansion plan in the French market.
