Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

This past year the firm’s management announced that I was on track to become a partner as from January 2020. This is extremely rewarding for me since I started with the firm in 2013, shortly after it launched, and have contributed to its growth and the position it has forged for itself in the French market.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

I believe that new lawyers in this field should realize that the private client world is evolving and now extends to a broader clientele that includes new business leaders and entrepreneurs. It is important today for legal advisors to take a cross-disciplinary approach to fully grasp the interrelated business aspects and personal wealth strategies of this new generation of private clients in order to effectively meet all their needs.

Enhanced QnA

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

In addition to many successful assignments this past year advising private clients on their strategic business and personal wealth strategies, including heads of CAC 40 companies as well as up and coming entrepreneurs, in recognition of our firm’s achievements, Opleo Avocats was endorsed with the “mention spéciale” for the best firm in Personal Wealth Taxation at the awards ceremony held for the Sommet Patrimoine & Performance in June 2019.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

The private client legal market is evolving and is not limited to historically wealthy individuals and families, but now includes a new generation of business leaders, particularly those who have built their wealth in technology and innovative sectors. It will be important for private client legal advisers to adapt to this new generation whose personal wealth strategies are intertwined with their business and corporate governance decision-making.
