Hogan Lovells is strengthening its Corporate and Finance Practice in Paris with the hire of mergers and acquisitions and private equity partners Matthieu Grollemund and Hélène Parent.
They join with five associates from Baker McKenzie, where Grollemund co-headed the Paris Corporate department.
Matthieu and Hélène’s practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions and private equity transactions with an emphasis on buy-out funds, high-end growth or venture funds, and family offices with significant private / public equity activity.
They represent numerous public and private companies and private equity funds in a wide range of domestic and cross border transactions, including business combinations, divestitures, leveraged buy-outs, initial public offerings, and restructuring matters. In addition, they regularly advise boards and committees on a variety of governance and other issues.
Their appointments follow the additions announced in Private Equity last year in London, United States, Shanghai and Frankfurt.

We have over 400+ partners within the Practice, located across all the major financial centres in the world. We are a fully integrated global team that combines exceptional transactional experience with deep industry sector knowledge.
