After 10 years practicing in a major international law firm, Sylvie became one of the founding partners of the Paris office of Signature Litigation which is a firm specialized in international litigation and arbitration based in London. She heads its product liability practice. She specialises in all cutting-edge complex disputes linked to products, namely product liability, product safety, toxic tort, mass litigation/class action, regulatory compliance, and environment.
Sylvie represents a variety of globally recognised manufacturers from industries such as automotive, electronic products, cosmetics, new technologies, steel, energy, food, toys, etc.
She is further known in the French market as a leading toxic tort / mass litigation lawyer. As such, she has been involved in most pro-company case law rendered in recent years, notably in asbestos-related cases, with some cases mentioned in the French Civil and Social Security Codes because of the significant reversal in case law they represent.
Sylvie is one of the three French practitioners recommended by The Legal 500 in Product Liability for France. She is also part of the Thought Leaders and Global Elite limited group of lawyers recognized in Product Liability. She was awarded the Lexology Client Choice Award for Product Liability in 2021 and 2022. She is further listed in the LMG Women in Business Law Guide and had won the European Award for Product Liability in 2019.
The Global Class Actions and Mass Torts Conference is a prestigious international event that focuses on the concept of collective redress, which refers to legal mechanisms that allow a large group of individuals who have suffered similar harm or injury to pursue their claims together as a single entity.
