The lawyers

Blanche Magarinos-Rey

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 post-graduate diploma (DEA - ex-Master II Research) in environmental law, and a diploma of advanced studies (DESS - ex-Master II Professional) in urbanism and public works, both realized at the University of Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne.

 

Her experiences within the company EIFFAGE T.P. and the State Council made her known the entrepreneurial world, as well as the judicial environment.

 

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

 

In France, she intervenes before all Courts, when the dispute concerns one of the Law firm fields of competence (environment, urbanism,  human rights ...).

 

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

 

 

Antoine de Lombardon

Antoine de Lombardon holds a post-graduate diploma in European Politics (Paris III - Paris Panthéon Sorbonne Nouvelle) and a post-graduate diploma in health and food safety law (Paris I - Paris Panthéon Sorbonne), after having obtained a double master's degree in public and European law (Paris II - Paris Panthéon Assas).

 

Wishing to commit to a discipline that includes a scientific dimension, Antoine has oriented his professional activity towards the environmental law.

 

Following a first experience as a lawyer for the CNRS (French National Center of Scientific Research), he served for four years as head of the Legal Department of the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (Afsset - now Anses).

 

A lawyer since 2010, Antoine worked for 6 years as a collaborator of a law firm with a strong reputation in environmental law, both in consultancy and litigation, before joining Artemisia.

 

He regularly publishes articles on environmental law and teaches environmental and mining law at the LaSalle Beauvais engineering school.
