” Gaelle’s calm and composed nature makes her colleagues and clients feel at ease, while the depth of her reasoning mark high points with judges.”
Curious and innovative by nature, Gaelle shines by her creativity, her outstanding attention to detail, her analytic thinking and her devotion. Gaelle also embolies team spirit and applies this principle to both her colleagues, partners and clients. She applies her vast experience and many parallel aptitudes to every situation she encounters, finding solutions to complex problems, making her a valuable asset for anyone who works alongside her.
Gaelle joined Sodavex as an intern in the winter of 2018. Early into her internship, she was presented with an offer to join the team on a permanent basis as a lawyer. She holds a bachelor’s degree in civil law as well as a double master’s degree in international and European law, which she obtained in France. Upon arriving in Montreal, she obtained a bachelor’s degree in law from the University of Montreal.
Before flying away to Quebec, Gaelle worked with many governmental institutions in Europe, namely in the cabinet of the French minister of Environment. She also worked for more than 2 years as a lobbyist for transport and environmental law in Brussels, where she advised important groups in the freight, maritime and energy fields.
Naturally, after such an enriched path, her integration within the Sodavex team was seamless. Since her arrival, she has advised clients on matters of contaminated soils and environmental and municipal legislation and is involved in a large number of very diverse cases relating to access to information, administration monetary sanctions, actions class suits and expropriation, to name a few.
