The French office, which opened in 2016, was the second office in Europe. The Afiniti France team covers French local clients as well as global French companies, along with clients in other European geographies such as Benelux, the Nordics, and Switzerland.
The team of twelve enjoy cheese and wine Fridays, and have a tradition of celebrating achievements with a bottle of champagne at the end of the day - how else should anyone celebrate such auspicious events!
It goes without saying that we work hard towards popping champagne as often as we can.
Afiniti by the Place
So close to a Napoleonic monument, the Paris team work hard to do justice to his memory.
The office is situated next to the Place Vendôme, at the center of which is the Vendôme Column, erected by Napoleon 1 to commemorate the Battle of Austerlitz.
The architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart installed screens across the corners of the rectangular space, with the aim of giving the space the illusion of an octagon.
The Place Vendóme is one of the most fashionable parts of Paris, where traditionally all the best dressmakers had their salons. It is now home to the Ritz, the Ministry of Justice, JP Morgan and, of course, Afiniti.
