Luncheon with Laurent Cohen-Tanugi, founder and Managing partner of LCT Avocats

A former member of Cleary Gottlieb and Skadden Arps, Mr Cohen-Tanugi is the founder and managing partner of Laurent Cohen-Tanugi Avocats, a boutique international law firm specializing in strategic assignments. His more than 30 years of experience in the practice of law were also marked by regular participations to, or chairmanships of, governmental commissions reflecting on diverse policy issues, such as the justice system and the intangible economy. Mr Cohen-Tanugi is also an intellectual figure and the author of numerous influential books on transatlantic relations, European affairs and globalisation. At the luncheon organised at the restaurant Le Procope on March 25th, he presented his last book, “What’s wrong with France?” (Grasset, 2015), in which he argues that the reason why France has so many difficulties adapting to globalisation is essentially because the pillars of its past excellence and identity are specifically challenged by it. Therefore, France should not just reform, but try to “reinvent” itself. A vivid conversation followed with the audience, which tended to abide by the thesis whilst expressing concerns for the conservation of essential national references and the pursuit of the construction of Europe.

A critic of Mr Cohen-Tanugi’s essay written by Mr Olivier Marty (in French) in the weekly newspaper Le Point may be found here: http://www.lepoint.fr/economie/pourquoi-la-france-doit-changer-d-etat-d-esprit-17-03-2015-1913428_28.php
