Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright’s Paris office has been awarded four accolades at the Palmarès des Avocats 2017 hosted by Le Monde du Droit. The ceremony took place on March 23, 2017.

Our firm was awarded International Law Firm of the Year and received the gold award in the capital markets and project finance categories, as well as silver award in the compliance category.

Being recognised as International Law Firm of the Year is a great achievement for us, and underlines the extent to which we continue to lead the market. It is a testament to the calibre of our lawyers based in Paris and the complexity of the work they undertake for our clients.”
