Paris, April 1, 2016 – The international law firm Bryan Cave LLP has announced that Rémy Blain will serve as managing partner of the firm’s Paris office, effective April 1.

An M&A and private equity specialist, Blain is recognized by Chambers & Partners and other league tables in the areas of mid-cap mergers and acquisitions, private equity and distribution. His past experience includes senior in-house positions at Total, Thales Group, and Airbus Defence and Space, where he negotiated large-scale, global transactions while living in London, Moscow and Munich.

Blain is a former member of the board of the French Association of In-house Counsels and the Management Committee of the Alumni Association of ESSEC Business School.

“With Rémy’s appointment as managing partner of the Paris office of Bryan Cave, we would like to reinforce our commitment to Europe and highlight our ever-growing international capabilities in the region,” said Bryan Cave Chair Therese Pritchard. “France is an important destination for global businesses and, through his knowledge and experience, Rémy is among the best-placed persons to lead the office and oversee further expansion.”
