Jones Day Paris announced recently that they had hired Eric Barbier de la Serre (formerly Latham & Watkins, Brussels).
He will join there Eric Morgan de Rivery, who is the resident partner in charge of competition cases.
I knew, as many, that Jones Day applied strict standards when it comes to appointing new partners. But that strict???
I mean, unless you are (i) a superstar antitrust lawyer; and (ii) you’re called ”Eric ___ de____”, the odds that you’ll make partner in Paris seem pretty low.
The bottom line: when it comes to HR, Jones Day clearly is no joker.
