Paris, France (January 28, 2013) - Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, announced today that David Revcolevschi has joined the firm as a partner with the Corporate practice in Paris. Mr. Revcolevschi is a prominent M&A and capital markets partner, with a significant cross-border practice. He joins from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, where he was a partner.

As the outlook for 2013 is more positive and confidence to undertake significant merger and acquisitions is progressively coming back, Davids expertise adds to our transactional strength in Paris. He will reinforce our capability to assist issuers and investment banks in M&A and capital markets transactions, said Olivier Deren, chair of the Paris office. He joins a group of corporate lawyers of the same generation in our Paris office, who are increasingly dynamic in domestic and cross-border private equity and M&A transactions, he added.

Davids hire advances our goal to strengthen our European Corporate practice, said Elizabeth Noe, chair of the Corporate practice. His practice will dovetail nicely with our recent London and Milan hires and reinforces our cross-border strength throughout Europe and with Hong Kong, she added.

He advises both in France and internationally companies on M&A and tender offers, and more generally on stock exchange and securities laws matters, and represents issuers and underwriters in IPOs, privatizations and equity and equity-linked offerings.
