French independent Orsay Avocats has hired a duo of partners to strengthen its international capabilities, including one from Nixon Peabody in Paris.
The firm has hired Nixon Peabody partner Douglas Glucroft, one of the last moves from the US firm’s now-closed Paris office (18 December 2012).
Meanwhile, former Jones Day lawyer Thierry Schwarzman is joining Orsay from boutique Vendome Law, which he co-founded.
Glucroft has practised in Paris for some time, having joined Nixon Peabody from French firm Kahn & Associés. He has also worked in-house and began his career at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton.
He focuses on M&A and venture capital, particularly for high-tech clients. Schwarzman advises on both transactional and litigation matters for corporate clients, as well as for high-net-worth individuals.
