Dentons hires two partners to make Morocco office permanent
Dentons has hired two UGGC & Associés partners to be based permanently in its Morocco office, which as yet had no permanent lawyers. Patrick Larrivé joins after 14 years as partner at UGGC and will be Casablanca managing partner. Christophe Simonnet was named partner after 6 years at UGGC last January. Five associates will support the two partners.
Several firms have bolstered their Casablanca presence in the past several years with local operations including Baker & McKenzie, Allen & Overy, Norton Rose Fullbright, Clifford Chance, and Eversheds.
