  • The only real shock is that why would anyone wants to join a firm like Gide?

  • Mainly because Gide is one of the best French law firm ;) (disclaimer I work for Gide)

  • Gide is a leading firm in France and a weak / mediocre firm internationally, so to the extent these lawyers are mostly French lawyers, this move makes sense. Gide remains a powerhouse in France, thanks to high quality lawyers and despite high-profile departures and being completely dysfunctional as a business organization. Culturally I'd say some of the newcomers may be in for a rough landing, though...

  • Mediocre internationally is a little harsh: Gide is decent in civil law jurisdictions (eg, Morocco) and in a few other spots (eg, PRC). This comes down to a few excellent individuals, however, rather than a deep bench or firm-wide strengths.

  • Surely French law firm and international are contradiction in terms?
