McDermott Will & Emery hires Antoine Vergnat

Antoine Vergnat is joining McDermott Will & Emery in Paris as a partner in the firm’s US and international tax practice group.

Previously with Orrick Rambaud Martel, Vergnat advises French and foreign investment funds, corporate groups and entrepreneurs operating in the industrial, service and real estate sectors on domestic and international tax matters, for example, transactional tax law, financing and restructuring, the management of tax affairs and controversies, and the structuring of private equity and real estate investment funds and equity compensation schemes, as well as tax advice to high-net-worth individuals.

McDermott Will & Emery hired Herve Bidaud as its first tax partner when it opened its Paris office in May 2011, but he left after only 10 months, in March this year.
