Bird & Bird builds real estate team in Paris with key recruit

04 October 2007

International law firm Bird & Bird has recruited its second real estate partner in the space of a month. Constance de La Hosseraye has joined Bird & Bird’s office in Paris shortly after Linda Fletcher’s appointment as a partner in the firm’s London office.

Joining from De Pardieu Brocas Maffei, one of the leading real estate firms in France, Constance brings over 13 years experience in a wide range of real estate matters but with a particular focus on advising investors and real estate funds on acquisitions and asset management issues. Constance also advises clients on environmental, health and safety, planning and contentious real estate issues.

Commenting on her appointment, Jonathan Baker, head of Bird & Bird’s International Real Estate Group said:

“We continue to invest at both partner and associate level in response to the increasing volume and complexity of real estate deals across Europe. France is a key country for a number of our clients and Constance will add strength and depth to our team. We are delighted to have her on board”.

Commenting, Constance added:

“Bird & Bird’s real estate group is committed to growth internationally and this strategy of expansion coupled with their excellent team make this a very exciting move for me.”
