Four partners set to leave the Paris office of Norton Rose

October 15, 2010 A team of four partners is set to leave the Paris office of Norton Rose after disagreements about the management of the office. Corporate partners Jean-Francois Mercadier, Pascale Gallien and Anne-Sylvie Vassenaix-Paxton, and dispute resolution partner Alexander Brabant will leave the firm with their associates – though details of where they are headed are not yet available.

Norton Rose’s group chief executive Peter Martyr said: “We’ve not been able to agree with him [Mercadier] on terms of management, and I think that’s a naturally accepted position in big international firms where you have to be able to do things in a certain way. We’re looking to make substantial growth in Paris and we need everybody to be on the same page in terms of management.”
