As a former entrepreneur, I have a keen sense of shareholders’ and managers’ stakes in M&A processes, which I use to build mutual trust, challenge ideas and be a partner committed to results.

Arnaud is instrumental in building Lincoln’s relationships with private equity groups and the firm’s presence in France. Arnaud has developed solid expertise in advising private equity clients and large corporates in complex situations, such as spin-off and carve-out of non-core assets, as well as divestitures of underperforming businesses, including out-of-court or insolvency proceedings.

Arnaud has been involved in more than 40 complex and cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&A), with a leading role in both initiation and execution. He has a strong understanding of corporate clients’ requirements, as well as financial investors’ expectations. Arnaud delivers M&A advisory services across a wide variety of industries, including industrials, automotive, business services and building and construction.

Prior to joining Lincoln, Arnaud conducted due diligence and corporate restructuring assignments for midcap companies at EY. Previously, he was an auditor with Arthur Andersen.
