Sherrards award Intercultural Trophy to Institut Français, UK


Geraldine Fabre, a partner in Sherrards’ French team took to the stage at PWC’s London offices last week to announce the winner during the French Chamber of Commerce’s annual cross cultural quiz evening.

Focusing on Sherrards international outlook in the face of increasing protectionist trends around the world, Geraldine praised the Institut Français’ commitment to embracing cultural diversity and congratulated it on its well-deserved win. The Institute Francais is part of a worldwide network promoting French language and culture and encouraging cross-cultural exchange and diversity.

Geraldine commented, “Whilst we didn’t enter ourselves for the Intercultural Trophy, we had a great table at the quiz and put in a fantastic performance.  With a mixture of English and French speaking guests, including Peter Burdin, former Africa Bureau Chief of the BBC and now Chair of the Trustees of Humanity & Inclusion, we were convinced we’d win – but didn’t!  Competition was strong with tables from Chanel, Euronext, PWC and many others.  The evening was a huge success for the French Chamber and PWC and really demonstrates that those of us working with companies in the UK, France and around the world are totally committed to continuing to build great international businesses and relationships.  As a firm, Sherrards has a number of international teams, with bilingual, and often dual qualified, lawyers. Our clients come to us for their commercial, employment, property, IP, litigation and private wealth needs.  With our backgrounds, we provide a great bridge between the different cultures and legal systems.”
