Laurent de la Rochère - Of Counsel

Laurent de la Rochère – Of Counsel

Alongside Maître Yann Soyer, who is a specialist in tax and company law, I deal specifically with the contentious matters with which the firm is instructed, in particular relating to construction law, real estate and condominiums related disputes.

I am also in charge of the procedural aspects of matters and following up court-ordered expert appraisals.
