Matthieu Pouchepadass Bredin Prat

Routinely active on blockbuster deals, Bredin Prat operates at the forefront of domestic and international M&A, including public, private, private equity and distressed transactions. Sophie Cornette de Saint Cyr also provides the group with in-depth securities law, corporate governance and commercial litigation expertise, whereas Olivier Assant is a revered name for all-manner of deals, particularly public M&A and takeover/activism defence. The team has significant bench strength at all levels and is also home to Patrick Dziewolski, an expert within the energy, construction and financial sectors, as well as cross-border transaction specialist, Benjamin Kanovitch. Elsewhere, Sébastien Prat is a market authority who has authored several corporate law publications while Matthieu Pouchepadass thrives on both M&A and private equity deals, also frequently litigating securities matters. Clémence Fallet is yet a further standout who supplements her transactional prowess by supporting listed companies on corporate governance affairs, as is Kate Romain who is distinctly well-versed in issues stemming from French foreign investment rules.
