HFW welcomes Partner Franck Bernauer to its Paris team

5 February 2015

HFW is delighted to announce that we have strengthened the corporate practice in our Paris office, with the arrival of Franck Bernauer, Partner and his Associate Anne Romain-Huttin.

Franck previously worked in the International Division of FIDAL and with Jeantet & Associés (based in Paris and in Eastern Europe). He specialises in transactional M&A, corporate and financial transactions and advises a range of clients in the industrial, engineering and energy sectors.

Together with Anne, who has been his Associate for over 7 years, they will contribute to the development of the firm’s Paris-based transactional practice and will operate both in France and in international and cross-border matters. The arrival of this team will thus create important new synergies across the firm’s core industry sectors, including energy, shipping, aviation and insurance/reinsurance.

Franck will also contribute to the development of the firm’s activities in Africa, for which the Paris office acts as a “hub”, by coordinating all the firm’s initiatives relating to this region.
