French litigation firm Racine has swallowed up M&A boutique Boisséson & Associés, boosting the firm’s transactional capability.
Six lawyers join Racine in the move, including the two lead partners Gilles de Boisséson and Jean-Yves Martin.
Racine is developing its corporate practice following a strategy review. De Boisséson’s practice focuses on IP, M&A and private equity transactions in the wine and biotech sectors.
Associates Cécile Bayle-Demilly, Anne Thouery, Stéphanie Verschave and Bruno Le Floch also join Racine.
Boisséson and his firm boost Racine’s partnership to 22, with 40 lawyers overall. Last year the firm’s turnover hit €12m (£8.05m).
