Marion’s practice focuses on white-collar crime cases as well as contractual litigation. She heads, with Fanny Rocaboy, the firm’s Compliance practice.

To answer the needs of her clients, companies or individuals, Marion advises, assists and represents them before criminal, civil and commercial courts.

She works on complex and multi-jurisdictional white-collar crime cases (fraud, bribery, favouritism, misappropriation, forgery and use, computer-related fraud, etc.), particularly for listed or non-listed companies in the banking, industrial and financial industries.

Furthermore, in order to support the rise of Compliance under French law, Marion is involved in the implementation or review of compliance policy programs, in the control procedures conducted by the French Anti-Corruption Agency and in the training of top management or operational staff in the fight against white-collar crimes, particularly in regards to bribery.

These activities require legal rigour, listening skills, flexibility and responsiveness.
