My practice focuses on all aspects of EU and French competition law, distribution and consumer law, regulation and compliance matters.
I have significant experience in antitrust cases in relation to cartels, vertical matters, abuse of dominance, state aids, as well as merger control regimes (merger control analysis, notification filing, market test, coordination for multijurisdictional filings …).
I defend the interests of my clients before French and EU competition authorities (Competition Authority, DGCCRF, and European Commission) and before specialized courts having jurisdiction in matters involving competition law (Paris Court of Appeal, administrative courts, supreme courts, constitutional court, and European courts) and follow-on actions.
As a litigation lawyer, I represent my clients before courts, including newly created international chambers, as well as in alternative dispute resolution procedures (mediation, conciliation, arbitration).
I also have in-depth expertise in handling litigation before sector-focused national regulation authorities including ARCEP (French Electronic Communications and Postal Regulatory Authority), CRE/CORDIS (French Energy Regulatory Commission), CNIL (French Data Protection Authority), CSA (French TV and radio regulatory body), and HATVP (High Authority for Transparency In Public Life).
My expertise includes the design and implementation of audits and related compliance and training programs. In particular, I was involved in drafting "The French lawyer and internal investigations ", a guide published by the CNB in June 2020.
I also advise clients on their economic and consumer law issues such as designing and implementing distribution networks, drafting contractual policies, terminating established commercial relations, misleading advertising and specific requirements regarding e-commerce.
I teach competition litigation within the master's program at Paris-Dauphine University. I am a member of the board of directors of the French competition lawyers association (APDC). I am also treasurer of IHEJ (Institut des Hautes Etudes sur la Justice), a French public entity that aims to foster discussion and scientific research activity in the fields of law and justice. I have been a member of the Conseil National des Barreaux (representing the interests of French lawyers) between 2015 and 2020.
I hold diplomas from the Georgetown University Law Center (GULC) in Washington DC (LLM in International law), as well as from the Universities of Paris II Assas (Post-graduate degree in Litigation and Arbitration) and Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne (Post-graduate degree in Business law). I have been a member of the Paris bar since 1995.
I joined Fieldfisher from YGMA, a firm I co-founded in 2004.
I am fluent in English. French is my native language.
