EY Law’s Paris office has been hit with another wave of departures.
Corporate finance partners Dominique Gerry and Jerome Gertler left EY for niche international firm Adamas at the beginning of September. They took with them four associates and several paralegals.
The news comes just a week after Paris boutique Ginesté Paley-Vincent & Associés scooped EY corporate partner Bernard Laurent-Bellue.
Gerry and Gertler rejoined EY colleague Hervé Le Blanc, who moved to Adamas’s Lyon office earlier this year.
The hires represent a significant strengthening of Adamas’s corporate department. The firm, which has offices across the globe and concentrates particularly on Asia, has built up expertise in public and environmental law, but is now focusing on other areas.
Gertler told The Lawyer: "We had very positive reacrtions from our clients. We have strong hopes that a strong number of them will follow us."
