DAC Beachcroft, a UK-based law firm, has expanded its European footprint by launching its first office in France.

The new branch in Paris will serve the global and domestic insurance as well as industrial risks sector.

The location will be headed by partners Vladimir Rostan d’Ancezune and Christophe Wucher-North. The pair most recently worked at HMN, an insurance firm based in Paris.

DAC Beachcroft international development director Gustavo Blanco said: “Our clients, world-leading insurance companies and large corporates, will have immediate access through our Paris office to the rest of our network of offices, associated firms and Legalign Global.

“Vladimir and Christophe have a portfolio of work that aligns closely with the breadth and depth of the firm’s Insurance practice and we are delighted to welcome them to DAC Beachcroft.”

The law firm, which is a founding member of Legalign Global, has 11 branches across the UK.
