Pinsent Masons opens French office


Law firm Pinsent Masons has opened a new office in Paris, France, to target the European insurance market.

The law firm, which also recently opened its doors in Munich, will closely link its European offices with the UK.

Nick Bradley, who joined Pinsent Masons as head of insurance in July, said: “Paris is a significant financial centre and home to some of the most important insurance and reinsurance businesses in Europe. Operating from an international platform is crucial in the global insurance market so opening in France was a natural next step for us.

“The appointment of Nathalie Sinavong in particular - who has specific expertise in the product risk and liability field - is a coup for the firm.”

The Paris office will be headed by Christoph Maurer.
