Arnaud said: "Fieldfisher has a growing reputation across asset management and financial services more broadly, and it's a firm I've admired for some time. What's more, the firm is very well placed – with its network of European offices – to support clients both domestically and internationally, and I'm very much looking forward to playing a part in the next stage of the firm's growth."
