Area of Expertise
Paris and Africa markets.
Background in legal publishing including creating and editing the Paris Legal 500 for eight years, so Laurent has an in-depth knowledge of the French legal market and useful contacts within the profession. 

Sector Specialism and Geographical coverage 
Paris/France - Lawyers of all levels (associates/partners) and nationalities (very often common law qualified solicitors) for French and international law firms. Particularly active in corporate, finance/capital markets, projects/energy, arbitration, tax. After recruiting tax lawyers for years in private practice, I am developing a similar specialism on the in-house side.

Developed an extensive recruitment network in Africa (the Maghreb, notably Morocco, and sub-Saharan Africa). In Africa, I’ve placed lawyers in law firms and in-house and also handle regional roles like Legal/General Counsels for North Africa or Sub-Saharan Africa.

I am also increasingly involved in compliance roles in Europe and Africa.

Education and languages spoken
Business in Bordeaux (Kedge Business School), including a postgraduate degree from Nice University.
French, English and Spanish.
