1 min read

At its annual Grand Prix awards ceremony in March, French legal publication Le Magazine des Affaires honored the Paris office two times, naming the Paris Capital Markets Team "Best Legal Team of the Year, Equity Capital Markets Transactions in Value in France” and also selecting the Exclusive Networks transaction on which White & Case advised as the magazine's "Private Equity Deal of the Year in France."

Won for the second year in a row by White & Case, the "Best legal team…" award recognizes important matters on which the Paris Capital Markets team acted in 2015, including four of the five largest initial public offerings (IPOs) on the French market (SPIE, Elis, Europcar, Showroomprivé), major share capital increases (Capgemini, Parrot) and block trades such as Airbus Group/Dassault Aviation, one of the largest block trade transactions in France in the last ten years.

In the winning "Private Equity Deal of the Year in France" transaction, the Paris Corporate/M&A team represented Cobepa, a Belgian investment company, on its acquisition of Exclusive Networks Group from Omnes Capital.
