City law firm Lewis Silkin today announces the appointment of Marie-Coline Frochoart as partner in the firm’s Corporate team. She joins Lewis Silkin from Fieldfisher, where she was an equity partner and led the firm’s French Desk.
An expert in corporate finance, M&A and joint ventures, Marie-Caroline is a dual qualified French and English lawyer who acts for a wide variety of public and private French companies – including a number of Euronext-listed organisations – in sectors such as technology and media & entertainment. She also has extensive experience in the engineering and healthcare industries, and has particular expertise working on complex cross-border transactions between France and the UK, often involving assets or companies throughout Europe and internationally.
Currently an Advisory Council member for the French Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain, she was named as a foreign legal expert in M&A for French clients in the most recent edition of Chambers Global (2013).
Jo Evans, partner and head of the Corporate Team at Lewis Silkin LLP, commented:
“Marie-Caroline is one of the leading legal advisors to French companies operating within the UK, and she brings a unique and welcome addition to our team’s capabilities. Even further, her experience within a number of the sectors at the heart of the firm – media and technology for example – will no doubt prove invaluable as we continue to build our international client base.”
“I’m delighted to be joining the team at Lewis Silkin and bringing to bear my experience in the French marketplace to serve the firm’s ever expanding range of international clients in key sectors. As French companies continue to invest and grow within the UK and other key markets, it’s my aim to work with the team to establish Lewis Silkin as the go-to firm to advise on such matters."
