Elie Badawi

Juriste & Business Developer France

About Me

I work as a Juriste in our Banking and Finance department. I am also part of our Aviation, Space & Defence team. I have studied International and European Law with a special focus on the Aerospace industry.

Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked for a legal and contracts department of a French major aerospace firm. My experience includes advising different teams on a variety of commercial matters, drafting agreements, and providing advice in several fields of expertise (including export control operations). I have also had different long and short term contracts and internships in top-tier international law firms where I have gained various legal and business skills.

I have knowledge in aerospace projects, export control regulations, cyber-security, IP/IT, telecommunications, European and international law in addition to a background in Economics which enables me to have a better understanding of the financial issues related to a case.

The Advanced Master in Space and Telecommunications Law which I have followed, was set up with the support of professional bodies to meet the needs of rapidly expanding industries looking for highly qualified graduates. With this background I can understand the needs and requests of the companies and institutions in the space/aeronautical and telecommunications sectors. I enjoy working in this industry and appreciate the opportunities it offers with challenging and innovative international matters.

I am fluent in French, English and Arabic which allows me to be part of cross-border work involving multi-jurisdictional issues.
