Both new joiners join Cornet Vincent Segurel from the Paris office of DLA Piper, where both of them were Of Counsel in the corporate department until recently. 

The addition of Alexis and Adrien will further strengthen Cornet Vincent Segurel's mergers and acquisitions capabilities.

Alexis and Adrien both have substantial experience in mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures (involving notably the drafting and negotiation of acquisition agreements, warranty agreements and shareholder’s agreements), as well as in company law, group reorganisations and general commercial matters, for French and international industrial, service and financial clients. 

They have both been involved in very significant international transactions for top French and international players. 

Adrien who started his career with Herbert Smith graduated from HEC, the leading French business school and the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris. 

Alexis who started his career with Slaughter and May and then Bredin Prat is a graduate from the Université Paris X Nanterre, the Université Paris IX Dauphine and holds an LLM in Corporate law from New-York University. 

Dominique Payet said: “It’s fantastic to welcome Adrien and Alexis, two expert practitioners with backgrounds in leading large commercial firms.  They both add strength to the corporate practice of our Paris office. We have now strengthened our offering of legal services with our new partners and we look forward to further developing our work here in France and with our colleagues across the world within the ADVOC network”.
