McDermott creates Restructuring Practice in Paris with the Arrival of Timothée Gagnepain
PARIS (14 May 2018) – International law firm McDermott Will & Emery has hired industry-renowned lawyer Timothée Gagnepain as a partner to establish a new department within the Paris office dedicated to Restructuring.
Admitted to the bar in both Paris and New York, Timothée has previously practiced in New York at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, before joining its London, then Paris, offices. He was engaged primarily in leveraged buy-out and refinancing transactions as well as highly complex financial and industrial restructurings.
In 2006, he joined the firm Sonier & Associés in France where he acquired experience in both national and international restructuring projects (Eurotunnel, Smoby, Belvédère, Cœur Défense, for example). He subsequently joined law-firm Bremond & Associés in 2016.
Timothée holds a Diplôme D’études Supérieures Spécialisées (DESS) in international taxation (Paris II – HEC), and an LL.M from Columbia Law School.
Jacques Buhart, Managing Partner of the Paris and Brussels offices, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Timothée to the firm. In a very active mergers and acquisitions market an expert of Timothée’s stature allows us to cover all the corporate and dispute needs of our French and international clients.”
Timothée added, “The role I am taking on here at McDermott represents the perfect next move for me in my career, offering as it does a superb opportunity to set up a new team and work across practices on integrating a new restructuring offering for our French and international clients.”
