Testimonials

The W & C team we work with sets itself apart through its large number of partners and associates (compared to other Parisian firms), its diversified practice, and its network of offices and partners abroad.

They are a strongly dedicated, hard-working, results-driven group of individuals that has, in my personal experience, the ability to effectively combine client attention with the right dose of positive and constructive debate.

Appreciate their ability to express and defend my opinions as their client, minimising entropy in negotiation, and maintaining focus on the ultimate goal of closing the deal. At all levels of seniority, I perceived professionalism and responsibility with a strong empathetic component.

Great team spirit: impression of good collaboration/relationship with each other, forming one team. All members of the team have strong knowledge in capital markets, thus are able to provide relevant advice in a limited timeline.

High-quality service. Good technical skills (French law and US law). A dedicated team, nice to work with and client-oriented.

The capital market team of Cenzi Gargaro delivers our documentation requests, and more sensitive cases, promptly and smoothly. They are reliable and nice to work with.’

As a client, I felt White & Case was effectively able to advise at any time of the day with drive and commitment to the responsibilities involved as well as a clear understanding of my position and my needs. Colin Chang and Robert Becker, respectively partner and associate, clearly stood out in this.’

Max Turner (a US-qualified partner) is an excellent expert, always available, provides very good advice and client-oriented.

Grégoire Karila is a very dynamic partner. He has a diversified range of expertise in the capital markets (debt, derivatives, regulatory), is available and provides well-thought-out advice.’

Grégoire Karila is very available and willing to help his clients; he is knowledgeable and solution-oriented.

We work principally with Grégoire Karila and associate Petya Georgieva, together they form an efficient team. They have good expertise, are respectful, understand exactly the needs of their client and have the ability to adapt efficiently to specific situations.’
