Like many of the firm’s partners, I am an example of the training and mentoring that UGGC Avocats can provide to its attorneys.

After an internship in 2009, I was admitted the Paris Bar in 2010, I became Senior Counsel in 2016 and joined the Partners’ College in 2020.

I am therefore very attached to this firm and to the public business law department, in which I learned a profession that I am passionate about.

My practice

I mainly advise clients in public procurement law, both as counsel and litigator, for public entities and private operators confronted with problems of contract award or performance. In this particular field, I am convinced that quality advice can only be provided by lawyers with solid litigation experience, in all its aspects (summary proceedings, judicial expertise, financial claims, compensation actions, etc.).

I also assist the firm’s clients in the field of administrative liability of public entities, in particular to seek compensation for economic damages resulting from normative activity. Public entities (the State, local authorities and public establishments) may be held liable for actions that cause harm to economic operators, either because of non-existent or insufficient regulations, or because of a failure to exercise their prerogatives. This responsibility may result, in particular, from a violation of international treaties or a disregard of the Constitution, thanks to the procedure of Priority Question of Constitutionality (PQC). I assist the firm’s clients at every stage of their claim: determination of the loss, formulation of the claim for compensation, possible negotiations and, if necessary, legal proceedings.

Finally, I have skills in public criminal and disciplinary law, mainly for breaches of the duty of probity. This practice is intrinsically linked to the two previous ones, because it requires a perfect mastery of the rules applicable to public entities and their agents, who may be accused of breaches by the criminal courts or by disciplinary bodies.

For all these areas of work, I can count on the expertise and experience of the firm’s other departments, in order to provide a comprehensive response to clients’ questions, but also to implement litigation actions involving referral to several levels of jurisdiction.
