“Strengthening my current sectoral expertise, particularly in terms of asbestos and health products, but also developing the firm’s clientele, these are my two main objectives, not to mention my desire to develop a new offer to the firm around collaborative law” , emphasizes Anne-Sophie Lilti.
An enthusiasm shared by Claire Laporte, whose primary objective as a partner is to “continue to meet the expectations of its current clients while anticipating for them the constantly reinforced constraints of the regulatory environment (personal data, cybersecurity, sustainable development, etc.).
