She represents companies from around the globe in pre-litigation, mediation, litigation and arbitration proceedings across a wide range of disputes, with a focus on industrial clients operating in sectors such as defence, automotive or chemicals. She has notably spent 18 months on secondment with a client’s litigation and claim management team in the defence sector. She frequently participates as counsel in shareholders’ disputes and in cases involving cross-border transactions. She has solid experience in the enforcement of arbitral awards in France including seizing assets.

Prior to her current role, Flore spent a couple of years in the International Arbitration group of Gide (Paris), after having trained at Shearman & Sterling, Bredin Prat and CVML’s former Tokyo office.
