King & Spalding’s Paris office, which was established in 2009, advises both French and global companies on a wide range of significant legal issues within the transactional, regulatory and disputes areas.
The corporate, finance and investment team represents clients on strategic corporate transactions across the M&A, private equity, capital markets, leveraged finance, tax, and energy sectors. This team also handles sensitive shareholder activism cases, takeovers and takeover defenses.
Our disputes team partners with clients on high-end Commercial and Investor-State International Arbitrations and French-law litigation matters in a host of key business sectors, including environmental and toxic tort law for which we also assist on environmental and safety regulations.
The Special Matters and Government investigations team is very experienced in assisting large groups, their executives and also institutions. Our lawyers regularly intervene in sensitive, complex, and high-stakes cases (internal governance issues, external growth, financial, strategic, geopolitical or media issues, etc.). The team is also instructed to conduct internal and international investigations.
The office fuses French and international know-how, in an integrated manner, to provide clients with the most effective and efficient solutions for their business and legal priorities, in France and beyond.
