Proskauer Rose, long a powerful player in the private funds and credit arena, has bulked up those capabilities in its Paris office, bringing on four partners from Shearman & Sterling and positioning itself to take advantage of the increase in corporate activity in France.

The four corporate partners are Xavier Norlain, Jeremy Scemama, Maud Manon and Matthieu Lampel. All of the attorneys have specialties that center around leveraged finance, M&A, direct lending and restructuring.
