Our team

The firm, which is structured around three partners, Florence Gaullier, Edouard Mille & Gilles Vercken, is comprised of six permanent associates, a Professor of Law of international renown, Valérie-Laure Benabou, and an Open Source/Open Data technical specialist, Benjamin Jean.

Each case is dealt with directly by a partner and a designated associate, a two-person team that is the client’s permanent contact. For some cases, the firm’s two partners are required to work together, supported by an associate from the team.

The firm also runs an active and continuous intern programme for holders of specialised postgraduate degrees or PhD students, strongly oriented towards in-depth research.
