Stéphanie Simon joins Racine as Counsel to develop the firm's insurance and reinsurance practice

Racine welcomes Stéphanie Simon as Counsel in its Banking, Finance and Insurance department.

As an expert in insurance law, Stéphanie Simon handles litigation, arbitration and advisory work for French and international clients. Her 12 years of experience have enabled her to develop specific skills that are recognised by players in the insurance and industrial sectors, as well as by pharmaceutical laboratories.

Drawing on this experience, Stéphanie's role is to assist clients in the management of their high-value strategic and/or financial national or transnational claims (in particular construction and industrial risks, financial lines, product liability and personal injury), as well as in the drafting of policies. She will also assist our clients, in coordination with the firm's other departments, with the insurance issues raised by more global operations. Stéphanie joined Squire Patton Boggs in 2015. Previously, she practiced at Bouckaert, Ormen, Passemard & Sportes since her admission to the Paris Bar in 2011. A graduate of Université Paris X-Nanterre, she also holds a Master's degree in Spanish law and has been a member of the Madrid Bar since 2010.

Xavier Rollet, Partner and Co-Managing Partner of Racine, comments: "Stéphanie's arrival in our teams is excellent news: she is a recognised specialist in insurance law. We're counting on her solid expertise to strengthen our presence in the financial and insurance sectors. Welcome to Racine, Stéphanie!"

Stéphanie Simon, Counsel, comments: "Joining such dynamic teams as those at Racine is a wonderful opportunity. I'm looking forward to contributing to the growth of the insurance practice and offering a full range of services with all the members of the Banking, Finance and Insurance department."

Sandra Graslin-Latour and David Masson, partners in Racine's Banking, Finance and Insurance Department, add: "Stéphanie's arrival is essential for our department in order to better assist our clients in meeting their challenges, including those related to insurance regulations."
