Patrick Mousset

Patrick Mousset is a partner in the Corporate M&A / Private Equity department in Paris.

Patrick's main areas of expertise are private equity and mergers and acquisitions, in particular to support French and foreign clients in setting up, build-up and disposal operations. For nearly 20 years, he has been advising French and Anglo-Saxon investment funds notably on the structuring of their investments and divestments, as well as active majority or minority shareholders, officers and managers of companies under LBO, and companies on their expansion projects, including joint ventures.

His experience in advising management teams on the structuring, negotiation and evolution as well as on the restructuring of their packages, distinguishes him from leading players in main national and international lawyer rankings.
