Paris — Mayer Brown partner, Nicolette Kost de Sèvres, who leads the firm’s Compliance, Regulatory and Investigations team in Paris, has been recognized in the 2021 list of Top 40 lawyers of the CAC 40, published by Forbes France in partnership with La Lettre des Juristes d'Affaires.
The list of 40 lawyers who stand out in the business law market among CAC 40 Index companies was devised following a survey of general counsel and senior executives at CAC 40 companies, France’s largest companies. The CAC 40 Index is a benchmark French stock market index.
Ms. Kost de Sèvres, who has considerable experience advising companies and financial institutions in matters involving anti-corruption, risk management, regulation, regulatory investigations, ESG and financial crime, has received a number of plaudits for her compliance work. Most recently in May 2021, Nicolette was named among Global Investigations Review’s top “100 Women in Investigations”.
“My goal is always to give my clients the best possible service and deliver the best solution for their business,” said Ms. Kost de Sèvres. ”It is truly an honor to be included in the CAC 40’s top 40 lawyers list and ranked not only as one of seven women but also as the only compliance lawyer.”
