by William Mata | 13th September 2018
FRENCH Embassy Minister Jean-Christophe Donnellier visited Tunbridge Wells-based law firm Cripps as part of a ‘fact-finding tour’.
Firm partner Olivier Morel welcomed him to the practice, based locally at Mount Ephraim, and held a productive meeting.
Mr Donnellier had talks with a number of partners at Cripps on his visit, which was part of a UK-wide tour. He said the purpose was to ‘gain a wider understanding of the business community’.
“I was pleased to receive Olivier’s invitation to visit,” he said. “I see a lot of the capital, but it is important to gain a wider understanding to build valuable connections.”
Cripps, which also has offices in London and Kings Hill, is a Top 100 UK firm with a turnover of £31.6million.
Mr Morel said: “As we are the largest law firm in Kent, the Minister visited us to find out more about the business climate outside London. It was a very productive visit for both parties.”
