France’s investigations bar (GIR)
“Stéphane de Navacelle left Debevoise & Plimpton when he was an associate in 2010 to begin his own criminal defence firm. In the past eight years, he has built a firm regularly called upon by French and US lawyers alike to assist with the French parts of large cross-border investigations – be it to act for individuals or to handle the French leg of a larger corporate investigation.
De Navacelle acts in a range of matters including money laundering, fraud, sanctions, market abuse and benchmark rate manipulation cases. Currently, de Navacelle represents Société Générale’s former head of fixed income and treasuries, Danielle Sindzingre, who was charged in August 2017 by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) for her alleged role in a scheme to manipulate Libor. The bank entered into a US$750 million DPA with the DOJ on 4 June to end the Libor investigation into the company.
De Navacelle is currently preparing guidelines for internal investigations on behalf of the Paris Bar Association.”
