I am French and I grew up in Montpelier, in the South of France. Even though I come from a purely French-speaking family, I was drawn to the German language and culture at a very early age and decided to pursue a Franco-German course of study immediately after graduating from high school. After a detour in the USA (including passing the bar exam in NYC) and starting my career in Paris, I have now been back in Cologne since April 2014, advising German and French companies, especially in litigation/arbitration, as well as private individuals in real estate and inheritance law. I enjoy analysing the effects of cross-border situations and explaining them to clients to help them find the right solution. It is particularly important to me to deal with both clients and opposing parties in a warm and friendly manner.
