Louise Firestone and Caroline Bergeron-Plantefève are high-ranking in-house lawyers at luxury conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH). These two women have played integral roles in navigating the company’s legal issues from opposite sides of the Atlantic—Louise in New York and Caroline in Paris. I had the pleasure of working with both of them on LVMH’s combination with Tiffany & Co. and related litigation, and recently sat down with them to discuss their experience as in-house counsel, takeaways from LVMH’s acquisition of Tiffany, their thoughts on hiring outside counsel, trends impacting the luxury market, and the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in their organization’s culture.

Lauren Aguiar: Would you share a bit about your careers at LVMH? Where did you start? And how have you gotten to where you are now?
