Inès Catoire is a French qualified associate in the Paris office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, where she serves as member of the firm’s Litigation and Business Restructuring Practice Groups.
Inès Catoire’s practice covers both restructuring and litigation.
Ms. Catoire focuses on complex cross-border restructurings and French pre-insolvency and insolvency matters on the first hand, including debt restructuring, LBOs and short-term loan renegotiation. She advises clients from a wide variety of sectors in the context of sales-related restructurings (e.g. sales of distressed companies’ subsidiaries through amicable proceedings). She also assists investors on the acquisition of funds, defaulting, and distressed companies undergoing insolvency proceedings, and creditors – including banks and CLOs – for the recovery of their receivables and the protection of their securities.
On the second hand, Ms. Catoire assists her clients in litigation matters, from collective labor disputes in relation to restructuring operations, to commercial, civil and white collar disputes.
She furthermore developed specific knowledge of energy law, in particular in the nuclear sector, and in-depth experience in fiducie techniques (i.e. the French equivalent of a trust).
Indeed, prior to joining Gibson Dunn in 2017, she worked as an in-house legal consultant on third party nuclear liability at the OECD’s Nuclear Energy Agency from 2012 to 2014. She then practiced as an in-house legal consultant at Equitis Gestion until 2016.
Admitted to the Paris Bar since 2017, Ms. Catoire received an undergraduate diploma in Business Law in 2010, and graduated from University Paul Cézanne – Aix-Marseille III with a master’s degree in Law and Energetic Governance contracts in 2011.
She speaks French and English fluently.
