Over the course of my career, I have worked in the context of mandates concerning numerous litigation and cases in municipal assessment for tax purposes, multiple expropriation files, various recourses in which was sought the civil liability of municipalities, different residential and commercial development projects and several civil matter files.
I quickly developed a taste for international development being involved in particular as an independent advisor to a board of directors for the creation of a Digital City in Cameroon. I accompanied companies in their projects in Africa related to the construction of houses with a renewable energy component in Nigeria, Benin, Senegal, construction in the field of education in the Ivory Coast, projects of electricity infrastructure and power plants in Guinea, water decontamination and market gardening projects in Benin, to name just a few.
