EU: Gibson Dunn set to hire a four-partner team from Ashurst

 |  June 8, 2017

Ashurst’s Paris office has been hit by its second large-scale defection this year, with a team of five lawyers to join Gibson Dunn to launch litigation and finance practices for the US firm.

The team consists of dispute resolution partners Eric Bouffard, Pierre-Emmanuel Fender and Jean-Pierre Farges, M&A and private equity partner Bertrand Delaunay and restructuring counsel Amanda Bevan, all of who will join Gibson Dunn as partners.

It is the second large team to exit Ashurt’s Paris office this year after the February hire of a five-partner private equity team by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.

The loss of both teams will leave Ashurst with around 10 partners in Paris, according to its website.

Last month the firm hired Linklaters senior associate Roux as a finance partner, while employment partner Fleury was promoted in the firm’s April partner promotions.
