 Alexander Lechrist has been a member of the Paris Bar Association since 2005. He was an Associate at GGV Avocats – Rechtsanwälte in 2013/2014, then a Director at PwC Société d’Avocats in the Financial Services department.

Alexandre’s arrival will enable GGV Avocats – Rechtsanwälte to continue and strengthen its development in the field of tax law.

“I am delighted with this new stage in my adventure with GGV Avocats – Rechtsanwälte, which is part of a relationship of trust that has only grown over the course of our various successive forms of collaboration. Joining the firm as Counsel was therefore an obvious choice, and I am very happy to put my skills and energy at the disposal of the firm in a development perspective that appears very stimulating”, says Alexandre Lechrist, Counsel.

Pascal Ngatsing, Partner in charge of the Tax Law Department, emphasises: “For the firm, the question of strengthening the collaboration with Alexandre also arose so naturally that the answer to this question was obvious. We are delighted that Alexandre has agreed to join us, as he has demonstrated his great human and professional qualities. Alexandre’s arrival fits perfectly into our strategy of strengthening and developing our tax practice.

In addition to the arrival of Alexandre Lechrist, GGV Avocats- Rechtsanwälte has strengthened its Tax Law, Commercial Law and Corporate Law / M&A departments with the arrival of two new Associates this summer.
