Who's Who Legal Investigations: Lawyers

Admitted to the Paris Bar in 2003 after obtaining a doctorate in law from the Pantheon-Sorbonne University in 2002, Astrid Mignon Colombet (who also graduated from Sciences Po in 1996) joined Soulez Larivière & Associés in 2004. She was made a partner in 2011 and a managing partner in 2016.

Over the past 14 years, she has become a recognised expert in crisis management, white-collar crime and complex criminal litigation, and has handled a large number of international cases in highly specialised sectors. She is often asked to advise on particularly challenging aspects of cross-border corruption defence, such as blocking statute, double jeopardy issues and internal investigations, and on international regulations, industrial risk assessments and anti-corruption compliance programmes.

Astrid Mignon Colombet is co-chair of the criminal law committee of the International Bar Association (2018) and sat on the ad hoc committee on cross-border corruption set up by the legal think tank Club des Juristes (report published in March 2015). She is a regular speaker at international conferences and has published numerous articles, such as “Le deferred prosecution agreement américain: une forme inédite de justice négociée” (“The American deferred prosecution agreement: a novel form of negotiated justice”) in La Semaine Juridique (2013); “La défense des entreprises à l’heure du droit global” (“Defending companies in a global legal context”) in AJ Pénal (2015); and “La Convention Judiciaire d’intérêt public: vers une justice de coopération?” (“The Judicial Convention in a public interest: towards a justice of cooperation?”) in AJ Pénal (2017).

She is ranked in band one of the France: corporate compliance and investigations section of Chambers Europe (2018).

WWL says: Astrid Mignon Colombet is praised by sources who note that she is a "fantastic practitioner" who is "really great" in complex investigations work.
