Biography

Ghislain has carried out legal studies both in France and Germany. He speaks French, German and English. Prior to joining Signature Litigation, Ghislain worked at the Paris office of a major international law firm.

In this respect, Ghislain has assisted a number of EU and worldwide product recalls. He is also involved in high stakes product compliance investigations by market surveillance authorities that notably lead to regulatory decision-making procedures, civil and criminal claims and negotiations with authorities.
