For nearly two decades, Winston & Strawn’s Paris office has been home to a group of dynamic, multilingual attorneys who respond quickly, ably, and efficiently to client needs pertaining to European, French, and international business law, litigation, and arbitration. Our attorneys are members of the Paris Bar, as well as various other jurisdictions. We provide legal services to French and international corporations on a wide array of issues, including corporate and commercial law, antitrust, labor and employment issues, environmental law, and tax structuring. Additionally, our Paris-based attorneys collaborate with those in other offices on arbitration, corporate, finance, and internal investigation matters.

Our healthcare, financial services, and defense practices are among the best in the industry, regularly making it to the top charts of industry publications, such as Décideurs Juridiques et Financiers and PLC Which Lawyer. In 2013, our finance practice placed among the top three best business law firms in France by the Monde du Droit, Palmarès des avocats d’affaires for project finance.

Though a global law firm with international resources, our Paris office still maintains the culture and character familiar to a small, boutique firm. We are invested in the city’s community and have received numerous pro bono accolades acknowledging this commitment, including recognition as the “Best Pro Bono Action Abroad” in the inaugural Pro Bono Award from the Paris Bar in 2012. Attorneys and staff are involved in many charity projects, locally as well as internationally, and practice in various fields such as child protection, the respect of human and civil rights, the protection of asylum-seekers and the prevention and reduction of violence.

In 2012, our office moved to the current location on the legendary rue Cambon. Our central office is accessible from Gare du Nord and near Place Vendôme, Madeleine, Opéra, rue St. Honoré, and the Louvre.
