Séverine Elie

Associated Partner

I began my career as a financial auditor for a leading pharmaceutical company in Europe before joining a cosmetics and fashion group (luxury sector) as head of international contracts. I then oriented my career in development capital and specialized in sales, acquisition, merger of companies working in the fields of energy, transport and sustainable development. After 15 years of experience in business, I wanted in 2009 to put my expertise at the service of the legal profession.

I am involved with student entrepreneurs, within professional women’s networks and teaches corporate law in management school.

 

UGGC AND I

After a career in groups and partner of SBKG & Associés, joining UGGC represents in my professional career both a coherent suite and an exciting progression.

From my experience in business, I have retained the added value of teamwork, sharing of knowledge and skills that will consolidate relationships of trust already established with our customers and necessary in the exercise of our business of lawyer.

 

CAREER AND LANGUAGES

I work in France and internationally in corporate law, mergers and acquisitions and commercial contracts with a particular interest in new technologies.

My complementary experiences allowed me to forge a specialization in business transfer law with a consulting and business development approach while maintaining a strong practice in commercial contracts.
