He had previously started his career in Paris in 1992 with a business law firm.
His significant in-house career has enabled him to acquire a strong international expertise as well as a solid understanding of the industrial world and of major energy and transport construction projects.

Finally, he has been involved in the management of compliance matters in relation with financial institutions and foreign judicial authorities (DOJ, SFO), the monitoring of due diligence reviews and internal investigations, and the follow-up of arbitration proceedings with commercial agents. In this context, he has gained a notable experience in the implementation of advanced ethics and compliance programs. In particular, Alstom became in 2017 the first company in France to be certified ISO 37001 for its anticorruption management system. This initiative has led him to receive on behalf of his legal and compliance team the Gold Trophy 2017 of the most innovative Legal Department by Leaders League.
