Blanche Magarinos-Rey, Lawyer & Founder

Graduate from the Universities of Montpellier, Constance (Germany) and Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne, Blanche MAGARINOS-REY took the lawyer’s oath on 4 April 2006.

 

She holds a postgraduate diploma (DEA - ex-Master II Research) in Environmental Law, and a diploma of Advanced studies (DESS - ex-Master II Professional) in Urban Planning and Public Works, from the University of Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne.

 

Through her experiences at the company EIFFAGE T.P. and at the Conseil d'Etat, she became familiar with both the business world and the judicial environment.

 

Thanks to her family background, she knows five different languages (French, English, Spanish, German and Portuguese).

 

In France, she intervenes before all Courts as long as the dispute enters the law firm's scope of expertise (environment, urbanism,  human rights ...).

 

Abroad, her activity is more oriented towards consulting and public relations/lobbying with public institutions and private operators.
