During my practice, I have developed a diverse clientele in several industries. In fact, my practice leads me to carry out transactions for businesses operating in various fields, and this, at the international level. My diversified experience allows me to have an overview of the various issues in the business world.
I strongly encourage our professionals to become socially involved not only because it involves giving back to one’s community but also because it allows a person to grow in what is often a different role. Doing so also adds interesting people to your social network, sometimes even expanding your business network, and it contributes to the firm’s good reputation.
