French independent Lefèvre Pelletier & associés is to open in Shanghai in September.

The firm, which is still waiting to receive its license, expects to have around 10 lawyers in the office, including local head Paul-Emmanuel Benachi. The launch will add to Lefèvre’s existing offices in Hong Kong and Guangzhou, and comes just months after the expansive French firm entered North Africa at the end of last year with offices in Algeria and Morocco.
