A week after Proskauer Rose announced it is opening a London office, the law firm is expanding its Paris presence.
Proskauer is absorbing private equity boutique Schmidt Gicqueau Dumas Mull-Jochen, Legal Week reports. The Paris equity firm was led by Daniel Schmidt and Olivier Dumas, who will become Proskauer partners.
In a press release, Proskauer chairman Allen Fagin called Schmidt and Dumas “a leading presence in the European private equity and venture capital worlds.”
