Q&A

What is your proudest professional moment?

As the Los Angeles Times wrote, ""Streisand was the lawyer who rescued both local NBA teams"". But I'm most proud of my victory that saved millions of acres of land in Patagonia for wildlife preservation and land conservation confronted with litigation by a disgruntled heir in the U.S. and Chile.

What advice would you give a trainee just starting out?

Most people believe the best trial lawyers are great orators. It's true, but the best orators are the worst trial lawyers if they don't know how to shut up and listen.

What would you do if you weren't a lawyer?

I would be a novelist

Where can you see yourself in ten, twenty, thirty or years? (you can pick one!)

At home in Paris teaching law at Sciences Po Ecole de Droit.
