Specialised in litigation strategy, he also keenly implements alternative dispute resolution methods, including settlements, mediation, and arbitration. 


His two terms of office in the Yvelines (78) department - as deputy mayor and vice-president of an inter-municipal syndicate - has given him a practical and realistic understanding of the various sectors in which he practices.
