Overview

Proskauer has a long history in France, having advised French clients since the early 1900s. We opened our Paris office in 1991.

The Paris office provides French, European Union and U.S. legal advice to businesses and individuals seeking to navigate the subtleties of the French legal landscape. The office’s reach is multijurisdictional, as it draws on the firm’s capabilities in the U.S., UK, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Key practices

Labor and employment

We are among the pre-eminent labor and employment practices in France. Clients come to us for representation in complex and strategically sensitive matters that require sophisticated advice. These notably include collective bargaining, workforce reduction, strikes, litigation and counseling, with an emphasis on large corporate reorganizations.

Corporate M&A/Private equity

Our corporate lawyers often are called upon to lead complex negotiations and provide strategic advice. We counsel clients in cross-border M&A deals, including acquisitions and divestitures, joint ventures and corporate restructurings. In addition, we handle portfolio company investments, add-on acquisitions and exits for our private equity fund clients.

International arbitration and litigation

We focus on complex international arbitration and litigation proceedings involving joint ventures, acquisitions, construction projects, licensing agreements and distribution relationships, as well as a variety of other international commercial agreements.
