Biography

I am an associate with LCM Attorneys inc. in Montreal, Canada.

I act in cases involving allegations of fraud and complex disputes related to corporate criminal law as well as in a wide variety of civil and commercial litigation matters primarily with Canadian, American and European clients.

I have also developed an expertise in anti-corruption and anti-money laundering policies and compliance.

Before joining LCM Attorneys inc. in September 2020, I worked in a leading Canadian firm in Montreal (Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP) as an associate (2015-2020). I have started my career in Paris working as an associate for a large international law firm (Hogan Lovells LLP). I also worked as a trainee in law firms in London (WilmerHale) and Shanghai (HHP Attorneys at law).
