Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has lost a team of public law specialists in its Paris office to New York rival Willkie Farr & Gallagher.
The team, which is thought to include around 10 associates, is headed by former environment, planning and regulatory group head Thierry Laloum, and energy and infrastructure project finance partner Amir Jahanguiri.
It also includes Freshfields counsel Vincent Brenot, who is joining Willkie as a partner.
The US firm has hired the team to launch a Paris public law practice to complement its existing corporate and restructuring offerings.
The new group will advise on PPPs and the financing of major infrastructure projects.
Laloum’s practice includes public, planning and environmental law, while Jahanguiri’s is focused primarily on the financing of major projects.
Recent mandates on which the team has advised include the financing of three French prisons (advising RBS and Dexia), a section of the French A41 toll road project ( advising Calyon, HSBC and Bank of Scotland) and a combined cycle gas turbine in Pont-sur-Sambre in France (advising Poweo).
