Prior to joining Bird & Bird, I worked for an international luxury goods company and assisted the legal department with new technology issues. I also trained in the Information Technology & Communication department of a leading law firm in Paris. These experiences gave me the opportunity to assist companies in complying with the French Data Protection Act and increased my taste for data protection matters. I currently work with our international team of lawyers and experts entirely dedicated to data protection, and advise clients both in the private and the public sector on various issues and matters relating to data protection and privacy. I notably conduct compliance audits in France and abroad for companies in various sectors, assist clients handling data subjects' complaints and requests and work on data export strategies and also in the preparation and implementation of Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs). With a thorough knowledge of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), I also advise clients with the preparation of the GDPR implementation including defining and carrying out the necessary compliance actions and conduct numerous trainings for DPOs and other stakeholders involved in data protection. My expertise also covers the French requirements of the hosting of health data in compliance with the French Public Health Code and I advise companies with the accreditation/certification procedure.During my professional experiences, I learnt how to work in new cultural environments and developed both autonomy and a team work ethic. The variety of my missions and the seniority of my lecturers enabled me to develop my capabilities as well as my knowledge and adaptability. Throughout my experiences as a secondee and with my combined training in both law and business at Edhec Business School, I have developed strong communication skills and acquired capacities for understanding business issues and challenges. I am used to getting involved in a very concrete and practical way.
