In addition, Sandrine has a renowned expertise in structured financing (M&A financing, assets finance and real estate), with a particular focus in the renewable energy sector.
Sandrine is joining Charles Russell Speechlys with François-Xavier Verdes who has been working in her team for the past two years.
Frédéric Jeannin, head of Charles Russell Speechlys’ Paris office, says:
“Sandrine is a highly-regarded professional in the M&A and private equity market in France whose clients includes investment funds and large industrial groups. Sandrine will join Thibaut Caharel and the corporate team and will help to broaden its capabilities.
“Since we set up the Paris office in 2013, we have steadily grown the size and breadth of expertise of the team and our practice. The continuing trust and appetite of our client base of privately owned firms, investments funds and executives for the unusual combination of legal and tax services we offer in Paris, is creating more and more work for our corporate team. The arrival of Sandrine and Francois-Xavier boosts that team to seven corporate specialists and will enable us to respond effectively to that demand. We very much look forward to working with her.”
“I am delighted to be joining the firm, and look forward to strengthening its dynamic corporate M&A practice, and working with the teams in Paris and overseas.”
