Who am I?

After a first experience in an American firm, I joined the tax and customer privacy Department of UGGC, of which I am partner since 2011. I also participate in many working groups and lead overseas conferences and debates dedicated to the private international law and international taxation.


The transversality of our skills and the quality of the relationships established between the members of our firm, all generations included, make a place to live and work in which I am happy to evolve and participate in the joint project initiated in 1993 by the founders of the firm. I especially appreciate the fact that the developments of the firm have been conducted, especially internationally, by maintaining a relationship of proximity and trust between each lawyer and their client.

My practice

I spent my early years of practice to ‘General’ taxation, all taxes and taxpayers included and assisting in restructuring and transfer of businesses. I then made the choice to advice managers and their families, foreign investors, artists and sportsmen in their private and professional projects. This leads me, for instance, to structure their real estate purchases, manage and transmit their private assets, to advise them during their expatriation or impatriation. In this context, I developed a particular expertise regarding the constitution and support of their family structures, their foundations and trusts as well as regarding the reporting incurred by the French and foreign tax regulations.

Finally, I am regularly contacted to advise and assist my clients during tax litigation and controls which they may be subject to.
