Litigation law firm Hausfeld is launching of an office in Paris, its fifth in Europe, and tenth worldwide. The French initiative is led by partner Laurent Geelhand who joined the firm in 2014 and was previously general counsel at Michelin for 16 years.

At Michelin, Laurent pioneered private enforcement efforts, turning the firm’s European legal department into a profit center by systematically pursuing actions against suppliers and recovering close to €100 million (US$123.8 million) from cartel infringements since 2003. Since he joined Hausfeld and opened the Brussels office, the firm has worked with a range of corporate clients in the automotive, waste collection, water treatment, retail, logistics and transport sectors, including BMW, Deutsche Bahn and PSA Group.
