Antoine Bouvatier

General Counsel

Antoine has been General Counsel at Abenex since 2007, helping to oversee the process of the management company becoming independent from ABN AMRO in 2008. He is responsible for all legal matters at Abenex, including for the funds and investments that Abenex manages, and leads the compliance and internal control functions. He also helps portfolio companies with various legally focused initiatives such as external growth, governance and structuring. Antoine is from Paris. For over eight years, he was a lawyer at corporate law firms both in New York and Paris, firstly at Richards Kibbe & Orbe and then at Latham & Watkins.

“I feel more like a lawyer today than I did before as I thoroughly enjoy working closely with both the wider Abenex team and portfolio companies, utilising my legal experience to assist with tailored operational improvements. I played rugby for 20 years and it’s great to see the same level of dedication and team-spirit at Abenex.”
