Howrey has raided Clifford Chance for a six-lawyer team that will launch a new antitrust practice in the firm's Paris office.
Headed by partners Claude Lazarus and Audrey Amsellem, the team, which includes four experienced associates, will join Howrey on Nov. 1, the firm reports in a press release.
"Antitrust law is one of Howrey's premier practice areas and the firm's reputation in this area is exceptional," says Lazarus, in the release. "Joining Howrey means that we will be able to offer our clients, as well as Howrey's, the highest level of expertise on the most complex matters."
