Practice groupLitigation

Due to her interest in international law, Christelle Coslin advises global companies on a wide range of cross-border and mass tort litigation. For nearly 10 years, she has been helping businesses from the Technology Media Telecoms, Life Sciences and Energy industries with their commercial and product liability disputes. Christelle focuses her practice on building litigation strategies and providing concrete solutions to global businesses when they are involved in complex disputes involving multiple stakeholders. Based on the mass tort litigation she has worked on previously, she is perfectly matched to help you navigate the changing legal landscape in France, in particular in the context of the rise of class actions and the increased civil and criminal liability risks for companies.

She has long-standing experience in assisting major companies with any international law issues they may face, whether they relate to the determination of the court having jurisdiction, the choice of applicable law, the enforcement of foreign judgments in France and the coordination of French proceedings with litigation pending in other countries, in particular in the U.S. This includes helping with FNC motions or evidence gathering through the mechanisms of the Evidence Hague Convention and the application of the French Blocking statute, as well as the implementation of U.S. ediscovery requests in France.

Thanks to her understanding of the way global groups operate, Christelle handles internal investigations within her clients' organisation, whether the investigation was initiated by an authority or follows a whistle-blower complaint. As part of the Business and Human Rights team, she won the Award for International Legal Services at the LexisNexis Legal Awards 2018.
