Background

 

With 23 years of experience as an attorney, I previously worked as in-house counsel and at law firms.  

My in-house experience working for multinational companies in France and the United States, consisted of a variety of legal counsel roles, ranging from commercial contracts, to business division matters, to procurement, to compliance programs.

As an associate at international law firms in New York and New Jersey, I participated in intellectual property and corporate transactions, and performed legal research for litigation.

At the start of my legal career, I worked as a law clerk for a federal magistrate judge in Dallas, Texas.

I have studied law in the United States (Columbia, J.D. 1996) and France (Université de Paris II Panthéon-Assas, LL.M. 2004, French business law).  From my work experience I have also gained knowledge of English law.

With an undergraduate degree in Computer Science (Columbia, B.A. 1992), I have a special interest and expertise in software and technology.

Born and raised in Brazil, I lived in the United States and Japan, prior to moving to France in 2003.

I am fluent in English, French and Portuguese.
