She also has a particular expertise in complicated children arrangements, especially those with an international element.
Having joined Cabinet BOURSICAN in 2008, after a first experience in a family law firm in SAINT-BARTHELEMY (French West Indies), she became partner of the firm in January 2018, in light of her experience and her expertise in both amicable and contentious proceedings.
