Cohen & Gresser Opens Office in Paris, France

04 February 2014 - Cohen & Gresser has announced the opening of its office in Paris, France - the firm's first office in Europe and its second office outside the United States. The firm plans to use the new office to serve its existing European clients and grow its practice in France and elsewhere in Europe, particularly in the areas of cross-border mergers and acquisitions, corporate transactions, international litigation and arbitration, and employment and labor law. 

The Paris office will be led by partner Johannes Jonas, who joins the firm from Dentons (formerly Salans) in Paris. Mr. Jonas has over twenty-five years of experience managing sophisticated transactions for European, North American and Asian clients.

"Cohen & Gresser attorneys have a strong reputation as smart, agile, and experienced. We have worked together for common clients in the past, and I am impressed with this law firm's vision in rapidly changing times. Clients will benefit from the strength of our combined team, especially in the area of cross-border M&A work," said Jonas 

Lawrence T. Gresser, managing partner of Cohen & Gresser, said: "After opening in Seoul, Korea last year, we are thrilled to open our first European office and to welcome Johannes Jonas to the firm. I have known and worked with Johannes since we both started practicing law over twenty-five years ago in New York, and I know that he shares our commitment to understanding each client's business, anticipating their needs, and providing superb, cost- effective client service." 

Founded in 2002, Cohen & Gresser has been recognized in Chambers USA, Legal 500, and Benchmark Litigation and was named to The National Law Journal's 2013 "Midsize Hot List." The firm has offices in New York, Paris, and Seoul and has grown to nearly sixty lawyers in four practice groups: Litigation and Arbitration; Corporate; Intellectual Property and Technology; and White Collar Defense.
