More about Olivier

Olivier specialises in international commercial litigation and arbitration, focussing mainly on dispute resolution arising in shipping (charterparties, bills of lading, shipbuilding, collisions, fire and explosion, salvage, general average, groundings, total loss, offshore and limitation), insurance/reinsurance and industrial risk (manufacturers' and operators' liability). He has dual nationality, is dual-qualified in French and English law and is bilingual in French and English.

Olivier is recommended by Chambers and Legal 500 for both shipping and insurance work in France. Sources praise the way in which he "conveys technical facts in an easy comprehensible way" and that he "also understands the peculiarities of working in foreign jurisdictions" (Chambers Europe 2012).


The Paris office advises on maritime and air transportation issues, insurance, reinsurance, industrial risks, infrastructure and construction, energy, international trade and commodities.

The office has a strong reputation in the field of commercial litigation and arbitration and has built a significant transactional practice over recent years, advising on corporate, financial, commercial law and international projects.
