Lovells has formed a co-operation agreement with Paris-based insolvency boutique Kuntz & Associés.
The tie-up will see the firms, who have a longstanding relationship, form a closer bond without entering into a full-scale alliance.
Under the arrangement Lovells will gain access to Kuntz’s specialist insolvency expertise, while Kuntz will be able to draw on Lovells’ full-service French practice.
Lovells restructuring and insolvency head Robin Spencer said: “Most of the leading insolvency lawyers in Paris organise themselves into boutique firms that dominate the insolvency market. Kuntz & Associés is amongst the very best of these firms.
“We’ve worked extensively with Jean-Emmanuel [Kuntz, the firm’s founding partner] and his team in the past on the court-facing aspects of restructuring and insolvency in France.
“We know from having worked together that Jean-Emmanuel is technically excellent, and we know from having pitched together that he shares our commitment to delivering practical, quality advice to clients and our ethos of working as a close part of the client’s team.”
Four-lawyer Kuntz was formed in 2005 by former Foucaud Tchekhoff Pochet & Associés lawyer Kuntz.
