How to pronounce Debevoise?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 25, 2013 2:18 pm

How to pronounce Debevoise properly? Please. Shall we say it the American way or French way? This firm is very fussy about the pronunciation and I've heard about stories that a bad pronunciation soured the entire CB.

right. The last syllable being "voys." deb-uh-voys.

For everything good and holy don't go with the French pronunciation
