Jeantet picks up Nixon Peabody’s de Senilhes for TMT boost

French firm Jeantet Associés has turned to Nixon Peabody for the hire of TMT partner Arnaud de Senilhes.

De Senilhes joined Nixon Peabody four years ago from Taylor Wessing, where he was Paris managing partner. He led a group of partners in an acrimonious split from the firm (6 August 2008) that saw 13 Taylor Wessing partners move to the US firm to launch its Paris office (28 October 2008).

At Jeantet he will focus on TMT, notably media, cinema and technology, and will also work with the firm’s tax team.

The hire is the second lateral for Jeanet in four months. In June the firm hired PPP partner Philippe Malléa, along with three associates, from Norton Rose.
