Corinne began her career in civil and criminal litigation in 1993. In 1997 she obtained a prize for rhetoric in the famous Paris Bar competition le “Concours de la Conférence” in which the 12 winners devote their time to criminal defense work and the representation of the Paris Bar abroad.
Since then, she has specialized in civil and criminal defense matters for both individuals and companies (in particular, both the prevention and defense of white collar crime).
She is known for the trusted and long relationships she develops…
…with both her French and international clients.
Corinne regularly advises clients in international and national estate…
…and inheritance matters, family law and complex commercial and civil litigation.
She regularly obtains the execution of foreign judgments in France…
…and has been key counsel and managed parallel commercial proceedings in the United States and France.
As an example of the complexity of inheritance matters, she has recently represented…
…a Dutch man whose late husband disinherited his children (who live in the United Kingdom) thereby depriving them of their right to a castle owned by the deceased in France.
She also has advised an American family regarding the inheritance and sale…
…of French real estate held in a trust established by the deceased parent.
