English-speaking lawyer in France (for house contract)

Hi,
We found a house that we want to buy in France (very close to Basel)
The owners found a notarie, but he doesn't speak english.
we are looking for an English-speaking lawyer to review the contracts.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Is it better to take 2 notarie in the first place?
Thank you!

I replied to a similar topic here: Property Lawyer in France

The short answer is: you probably don't need an English-speaking lawyer, as the notaire is impartial and is paid to protect the interests of both parties. If you do get an English-speaking lawyer involved, expect it to be very expensive.
