Salans has continued the growth of its Paris office by bolting on restructuring boutique Sonier & Associés.
The move sees Sonier partners Gabriel Sonier and Caroline Texier join Salans in Paris as partners. The duo bring with them associates Marie Dubarry de Lassalle and Charlotte Mantoux.
The hires bring the number of new partners at Salans in France during 2011 to six. Salans hired Bird & Bird tax partners Isabelle Leroux and Anne Quénedey in September (15 September 2011), before picking up private equity partners Pierre Jouglard and Emmanuel Scialom from SNR Denton and Willkie Farr & Gallagher respectively in November (4 November 2011).
Sonier & Associés was founded in 1971. Texier joined the firm in 2005, becoming a partner in 2009. Sonier and Texier’s experience includes advising on the restructuring of Eurotunnel, Thomson and Cœur Défense, while Sonier also helped the French government prepare legislation on distressed companies.
Salans’ global managing partner Dariusz Oleszczuk said the hires were part of the firm’s “ambitious plan” to develop an international restructuring and insolvency practice.
