Written by staff reporter
DAC Beachcroft has this week opened a new office in Paris – its first in France. The Parisian team, led by partners Vladimir Rostan d'Ancezune and Christophe Wucher North, will focus on both the global and domestic insurance and industrial risks sectors.
The two have extensive experience of this specialist market and of international work in the UK, Spain, Germany, LatAm, Australia, the USA and Singapore. They join from HMN, a Parisian insurance firm.
DAC Beachcroft managing partner, David Pollitt, said, "This is an exciting development, part of our international strategy to grow our footprint in strategically significant centres and continue to strengthen the international support we offer our clients. Paris is an important hub for international insurance work, as well as gateway into the strong domestic market. Our ambition is to be the leading provider of insurance legal advice in France."
The new Paris office strengthens DAC Beachcroft’s existing international presence, which is comprised of the firm’s 11 UK locations, as well as offices in Ireland, Spain, the United States, Singapore, Mexico, Colombia and Chile. DAC Beachcroft is also a founding member of Legalign Global, a closely integrated alliance of four multinational law firms with 60 offices across the globe.
