Introduction

Who am I? 

A lawyer by inclination, I have always considered that law is the driving force of economic development and social peace.

Active during 30 years in professional unions and organisations of the socio-economic world, I have always seen our profession as a wonderful human adventure looking to the future.

A passionate enthusiast of our world in constant evolution, I strongly believe in the need to strengthen our day-to-day dealings with our clients, our partners and the teams who put their trust in us.

UGGC & I

Co-founder of SBKG law firm, I dedicated these last 20 years to the development of our professional practice, and especially to the practice of business litigation, private equity and real estate.

Joining UGGC Avocats in merging our teams seemed evident since we share the same sense of proximity with our clients and our competences were complementary.

My practice

I concentrate mostly on litigation strategy in financial and corporate transactions.

My activity is also focused on private equity and real estate.
