Corporate & M&A
Clients recommend a three-partner team which provides ‘sophisticated advice’ to a predominantly US and UK-based client roster. The ‘excellent’ Saskia Myners excels in handling private equity transactions. Katia Scheidecker and Catherine Baflast are other names to note. In addition, the team has reinforced its expertise welcoming Jean-Philippe Smeets as Head of M&A practice.

Basile Fémelat, recommended by clients, provides ‘clear analysis on structured finance matters’ and has handled numerous mandates for originators in multimillion-euro securitisation transactions.
Clients praise the ‘calm and pragmatic’ Marielle Stevenot who excels in handling employment issues related to outsourcing and restructuring projects. Cindy Arces regularly assists international clients on staffing and day-to-day employment law compliance issues. Our both dedicated Partners led their team to maintain its top ranking.
Technologies & IP
Clients praise and recommended the ‘responsive and pragmatic’ Audrey Rustichelli. Since taking over the position of Head of the Technologies and IP department, the team has been active handling data protection compliance projects for corporates in light of the forthcoming GDPR.
‘Increasingly visible in the market’, the practice led by Charles Roemers provides ‘creative and technical’ tax-efficient structuring advice pertaining to corporate and private equity transactions. The firm regularly works alongside the real estate team on tax structuring matters.
