Who am I?

I have been a lawyer practising employment law for over 15 years and at first I worked mostly in Anglo-Saxon law firms considering my academic background in the USA.

I joined the employment law team at UGGC Avocats in 2006, first as an associate before becoming a partner in 2012.

UGGC and I

For me, our firm possesses the essential assets required to assist and ensure the success of our clients thanks to its multidisciplinary nature, its high level of expertise and technical excellence and international dimension.

And on top of this, there is real pleasure in working as a team and an excellent atmosphere.

This is why I am committed to it.

My practice

Part of my work is devoted to international business and I am regularly dealing with clients based abroad, either when they get established in France or when they leave, or to deal with employment law aspects for their French subsidiaries.

Another significant part of my activity is devoted to employment aspects of company restructurings and transfers which naturally implies audits upstream but also job saving plans downstream.

Finally, I deal with all aspects of labour law and labour relationships for clients from the industrial, IT and electronic banking, telecommunications and show business sectors.
