Julie Hollard first studied business law, including Canadian and European law, but never lost sight of her interest in civil liberties. She worked with the eminent Parisian criminal lawyer Mr. Philippe Lemaire, who initiated her to the primarily important aspect of her job: its human dimension. She assisted him in many trials at the French Cour d’Assises. Continuing down her path, she set up a business with a specialty in criminal law and business criminal law. After a couple of years of practice in Nîmes, Mayotte and Paris, and inspired by the newly found universalist aspect of her job, she strived for the defense of immigrants’rights in France.
Julie Hollard holds a Master’s Degree in Business Law from the University Pierre Mendès France in Grenoble. She also had courses in criminal law and business law at the University Laval in Quebec, Canada, and studied international trade law and eco-labels at the University McGill in Montreal. At the same time, she teamed up with a group of consultants in territorial integration for heavy industry, which led her to work on eco-labelling concepts as well as the emergence of private rights established norms. Back in Paris, she studied at the Ecole de Formation au Barreau de Paris (Paris graduate law school) and obtained a DESS (French equivalent of a Master’s Degree) in European business law.
In 2003, she is admitted to the Paris Bar. She is fluent in English and also speaks Spanish.
Julie Hollard now focuses on criminal law and business criminal law, as well as immigration law. She pays close attention to legal developments related to the growing success of corporate social and environmental responsibility.
She enjoys working with European, African and Middle Eastern clients.
