As an attorney, I have always liked branching out into various areas of law, and our telecoms practice is actually all about that! As part of the commercial IT team, I bring my expertise in public law and private law alike to our public sector and private sector clients, with a focus on telecoms and new technology matters. Since joining Bird & Bird, I have particularly enjoyed working in an internationally-oriented and very friendly work environment where we are able to offer solutions to our clients across various jurisdictions. Before joining the telecoms team here at Bird & Bird, I gained valuable experience in public law, with a focus on transport infrastructure and networks, while working at a boutique law firm dedicated to public projects. I have been running a workshop on negotiation with law students at my Alma mater, Lumière Lyon II University, for the past three years. I also had the opportunity to teach French as a teaching assistant as part of an exchange program between Lyon II and the University of Virginia (UVA), in Charlottesville, for a year.
