Here at Bird & Bird in Paris, I have been a partner in our Dispute Resolution Group for over 20 years. As a specialist in commercial litigation, I've acted in many matters concerning IT and the Internet.

I offer broad judicial expertise in all kinds of commercial disputes, including unlawful competition, enforcement of contractual provisions and sudden termination of commercial relationships in sectors as diverse as technology & communications, retail & consumer, automotive and media, entertainment and sport. I'm also an expert in provisional remedies and preliminary injunctive reliefs within judicial and arbitration proceedings.

As one of the first lawyers in Paris to have developed a regular mediation practice for IT disputes, I know how to facilitate the emergence of win-win business out of court solutions, even in very litigious and difficult disputes. I am also familiar with long phases of technical expertise when needed, but I also know how to offer practical solutions instead that wouldn't be allowed in judicial proceedings.

You'll find me listed as a leading mediation specialist in the French publication "Décideurs Stratégie Finance Droit". Since 2012, I have appeared in "Best Lawyers International" in the litigation category.

I'm a member of both the French Committee for International Civil Law (Comité Français de Droit International Privé) and a certified IFOMENE mediator. Since 2011, I sit on the board of Guerbet, a French listed pharmaceutical group specialising in medical imaging, where I also chair its Ethics and Governance Committee.
