Paris office now open
Wragge & Co's new Paris office is now open, offering commercial legal advice from some of France's leading lawyers.
The team, based at 140 avenue des Champs-Elyées, comprises ten partners, five directors and 18 associates. A substantial new office in Paris adds serious strength to Wragge & Co's international capabilities.
From day one, the firm's Paris-based experts will offer top-quality advice on corporate, real estate, funds, tax, finance, dispute resolution, corporate recovery, IP, commercial and projects matters. The new team is supported by the full might of Wragge & Co's 1,000+ people.
Senior partner Quentin Poole says, "We always ask ourselves: how can we improve the service we provide to our clients? That means looking at their global legal needs. Part of the answer comes in the shape of these truly exceptional French lawyers. They are well respected and an important addition to our single team."
Legal 500 and Chambers Europe-rated experts Pierre Appremont, David Blondel, Laurent Jourdan and Henry Ranchon are among the ten partners. Pierre-Emmanuel Chevalier, Arnaud Guérin, Eglantine Lioret, Simon Lowe, Jérôme Patenotte and Philippe Rousseau are the other six partners.

About 25% of Wragge & Co's work involves two or more countries. This includes international arbitration, IP work in China, cross-border M&A and infrastructure projects.
Quentin Poole adds, "Our international strategy is simple. Wherever you are in the world and whatever you want to achieve, we will use the best lawyer for the job. That might be through our own office or via a trusted best friend firm. The single most important consideration is the quality of advice and service."
