Foley Hoag bolsters Paris with White & Case hire

US firm Foley Hoag has added its sixth partner in Paris with the hire of White & Case arbitrator Philippe Sarrailhé.

Sarrailhé’s appointment follows the hire earlier this year of Winston & Strawn partners Carine Le Roy-Gleizes and Frédéric Scanvic, along with fellow environmental law specialist Corentin Chevallier who was a senior associate at Winston & Strawn.

Foley Hoag’s Paris office was launched three years ago today with a focus on contentious work (1 July 2011), through the hire of Winston & Strawn duo Bruno Leurent and Thomas Bevilacqua. With Sarrailhé’s arrival, the firm now boasts six partners and seven associates in France.

Sarrailhé focuses on international commercial arbitration, advising companies in sectors including automotive, aeronautics, chemicals, technology and hospitality on disputes around the world.

He joined White & Case in 2011 from Ashurst (4 June 2011).

Sarrailhé is the second Paris partner to leave White & Case within the last month, following the departure of corporate partner Eric Muller to French firm De Pardieu Brocas Maffei (12 June 2014).
