Bird & Bird raids French independent for lateral

Bird & Bird’s Paris office has scooped the head of the data protection group from powerhouse IT boutique Alain Bensoussan Avocats.

Partner Ariane Mole and one assistant will join Bird & Bird at the beginning of June.

Prior to her time at Bensoussan, Mole worked for the European Commission where she assisted with the creation of the DataProtection Directive of 1995. Before that she worked for CNIL (The National Commission for Data Protection and Privacy in France).
