We were saddened to learn that our much-appreciated Partner Franck Bauchet passed out in the night of 10-11 July, after months of illness. Franck had entered our law firm in 2004. He practised tax and corporate structuring, inter alia in finance projects and mergers and acquisitions, thanks to his dual background as a Certified Public Accountant and Tax Attorney. His expertise was notably praised in the French market. Even more than his professional excellency, we will remember his human qualities: intellectual integrity, sound judgement and rectitude. Our thoughts are with Franck’s family and friends, in and outside the office.
