I then wanted to put my dual experience as a private practitioner and an in-house counsel to good use by offering companies seasoned legal expertise, working closely with the operational staff, understanding their language and their needs. The law is a tool at the service of companies, generating added value. The mediation activity also brings a special insight and approach that I strive to help companies benefit from. »
