Clyde & Co expands infrastructure team with Paris hires
Clyde & Co has expanded its offering in the key industry sectors of infrastructure, energy and telecoms with the hire of two partners in Paris. Carole Arribes and Eric Diamantis joined the firm at the beginning of May 2014.

Carole joins from Winston & Strawn and previously Hogan Lovells, and Eric from Watson Farley & Williams.

Their addition will enhance the firm's French commercial practice and cross-border capability, and the global projects & construction group in particular.  This group has steadily expanded over the last 12 months and now consists of more than 150 lawyers working across six continents.  New partners in Perth, San Francisco and Hong-Kong recently joined the group.

John Morris, Clyde & Co's head of global projects & construction, said:

"Eric and Carole are a valuable addition to the team and will further enhance our capability in Paris, and projects in Francophone Africa. The recruitment of projects & construction partners, with this strong geographic expertise, is testament to the firm's commitment to Africa and our investment in the growth of a broader strategy in the region."

Carole has a wealth of experience advising French and international clients on M&A, joint ventures, regulatory, contractual and cross border work. She has significant experience in the energy sector in contractual and transactional matters, namely on regulatory issues and project development. Carole has also been very active in  the technology and communications sectors, advising on matters across Europe, Asia, North and West Africa.

Eric has advised on significant infrastructure projects in the oil and gas, mining, renewable energy, telecoms and transportation sectors. He is also involved in dispute resolution, with special expertise in international arbitration, including ICC, ICSID, SIAC and AAA jurisdictions. Eric's geographic expertise spans Eastern and Western Europe, the Middle East, North and West Africa.
