Wragges taps Eversheds for three-lawyer Paris team

Wragge & Co has hired a three-lawyer employment team from Eversheds in Paris.

Employment Partner Valerie Blandeau joins Wragges Paris office along with associates Myrtille Lapuelle and Gaelle Le Breton.

According to Wragges, the addition of an employment team completes the firm’s full-service offering in Paris. The office also covers corporate, real estate, funds, tax, finance, dispute resolution, corporate recovery, IP, commercial and projects.

Wragges senior partner Quentin Poole said: “Valerie’s just what we’ve been looking for. Technically accomplished in all aspects of employment law, she has a strong track record for providing international organisations with pragmatic and commercial advice.”

Wragges opened its office in Paris in April 2010 after hiring a group of partners from referral firm Lefèvre Pelletier & Associés (25 January 2010). The firm now has 12 partners in its 59-strong Paris team.
