Danhoe Reddy-Girard is a partner in Gowling WLG's Paris office. His practice focuses on banking & finance, real estate and compliance.

In his banking & finance practice, Danhoe assists lenders, investors and businesses with finance transactions (real estate, LBO, guarantee, syndicated, receivable-backed facilities…) and provides advice on European and French banking and financial regulations. Dan is recommended by Legal 500 and Decideurs for his expertise in real estate finance in France.

In his real estate practice, Danhoe advises real estate players not only with their real estate finance transactions but also with their commercial leases, their acquisitions, their asset and property management agreements and their merger and other corporate transactions, coordinating the work of specialists where appropriate. Danhoe was selected by his peers for inclusion in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in France for his work in Real Estate Law.

In his compliance practice, Danhoe advises various organisations with the adaptation of their contracts to French law and on complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). He drafts contracts, policies, privacy notices, records of processing activities and audit reports.

Born in Montreal, Danhoe completed part of his law studies in France (DEA, Droit des Affaires, Panthéon-Assas, with distinction) and is a French lawyer since 2002. He practiced law at real-estate-focused French law firm Lefèvre Pelletier & Associés almost eight years before joining Gowling WLG (then named Wragge & Co) in 2010. He is also qualified as an attorney in New York and Ontario and holds an Executive MBA from INSEAD
