Admitted to the Paris Bar, Soraya AZZABI RACETTE has joined MANDEL-ASSOCIES as an associate.
Due to the fact that she has completed her studies in Canada and in France, Soraya is perfectly bilingual in English and French, and has sound knowledge in both common law and in continental law. Soraya holds a law degree from the University of Montreal (LL.B. Bachelors of law, 2007), as well as a Master 1 in International business law and a Master 2 in Insurance law from the Paris-1, Panthéon-Sorbonne University.
Before entering the firm, she was working with the French law firm DELHOMME, where she has developed skills in civil liability and in criminal law. Prior to that experience, she worked at the legal department of the American insurance broker and risk management company, MARSH S.A.
In July 2018, Soraya was admitted to a selective exchange programme in London organized by the Paris Bar and the Gray’s Inn. Working alongside several English Barristers, Soraya attended multiple civil and criminal court hearings whilst marshalling with judges, and therefore developed practical expertise in English litigation and proceedings. Consequently, she easily understands the needs of our Anglophone clientele.
Soraya intervenes for our clients, both French and international, especially our Anglophone clientele, as Counsel and Litigator, with a primary focus in Commercial law, Contract law and Intellectual property law.
