Professional Development and Training
The Paris office is organized into four broad practice groups: Corporate & Finance, Tax, Business Reorganization & Restructuring and Litigation. The firm believes in the merits of providing associates in each practice group with well-rounded legal training and, given the nature and diversity of our practice, specialization in the early stages of an associate’s career is not encouraged.
The Corporate & Finance group, our principal practice area, is primarily focused on private equity, capital markets and joint venture transactions, and offers lawyers the opportunity to work on a diverse range of corporate, commercial and securities law assignments. Similarly, attorneys in our other practice groups handle a broad range of matters within their specialty areas.
The firm is deeply committed to facilitating the successful integration of its new associates and stagiaires
. Upon arrival, each new stagiaire
is designated a partner or senior associate who actively monitors the evolution of his or her stage
and each new associate is paired with a mentor who provides support and general advice on the associate's professional growth and development. Furthermore, stagiaires
and associates frequently share offices, thereby fostering informal mentoring relationships. The firm maintains a decidedly open-door policy which facilitates a supportive environment where guidance and advice are always available.
Associates are provided with regular feed-back on their work and progress at the firm through annual performance reviews.
