I think your looking for a plumbing contractor, or a drainage contractor or sewer contractor.
As for the french drains--- I don't think you want that? A french drain is a drain that goes nowere, its only a trench that is filled with gravel to the top of the ground and has no outlet, it allows a quanity of water to collect and perculate through the ground. Unless your soil has good perculation then I suggest that you install drainage piping and gravel extended to an outlet to a sumppump if you can't gravity drain the area to the street or sum area away from the house.
good luck,
