In an effort to better serve its clients conducting business in France, Reed Smith has opened a Paris office with four partners from the Paris firm Rambaud Martel. The new office will operate under the name Reed Smith Rambaud Charot, the latter two reflecting new partners Mathieu Rambaud and Benoit Charot. The four new partners and six associates will handle transactional and litigation work surrounding Rambaud’s mergers and acquisitions practice and Charot’s industrial risk, product liability and white collar defense work. “Expansion in Paris is largely driven by the needs of clients in two of Reed Smith’s core practices: life sciences and financial services,” Reed Smith managing partner Gregory B. Jordan said in a statement. “Reed Smith’s significant life sciences clients are increasingly active in France and the capital of Paris also provides excellent opportunities for expanding the firm’s financial services practice.” The new office will also serve to expand the firm’s work in banking, pharmaceuticals and products work on an international level, Jordan said. The new addition brings Reed Smith’s European offices to a total of four, with two UK offices and the seven-month-old Munich office. Reed Smith has been doing work for French businesses and international clients with interests there out of its England offices, which have over 100 lawyers. Instructions from French corporations currently make up 10 percent of the corporate and commercial work done in those offices. The firm also services U.S.-based companies with operations in France. Reed Smith’s offices in the UK, New York and Germany have bilingual lawyers who have been advising French-based companies. The new office, as evidenced by its name, plans to integrate the culture of a traditional French business law firm with the international capabilities of Reed Smith. The firm plans to expand the Paris office in 2006 with additional French lawyers committed to that international approach. Marie Albertini and Philippe Lecler, two other former Rambaud Martel partners, have also been named partners in the Paris office. Rambaud’s father is the latest managing partner of his former Paris firm and his grandfather was the firm’s founder.
