DLA Piper has chosen Brussels- based partner Steven De Keyser to head its Paris office following Bruce Mee’s retirement from the role.
Mee stood down as Paris managing partner to focus on developing the litigation and regulatory practice. He took over from long-serving Paris head Alan Carridi in 2007. De Keyser is understood to have taken on the role until a permanent replacement can be found.
DLA Piper joint CEO Sir Nigel Knowles said: “Under Bruce Mee’s leadership our Paris office has undergone significant expansion and is poised to continue growing in line with our current three-year plan.”
