What clients said
“She provides brilliant and spot-on advice on the
legal issues, as well as on the required strategy to
get the best results – an aspect that other lawyers
often tend to ignore.”
“Salomé’s prior in-house experience and her
familiarity with the expectations of US and European
clients further enhance her value.”
“She not only has access to the top-level authorities
in the European Union (particularly in the competition
world), but also throughout the world, which is
sometimes very useful when facing critical issues.”
“Her extensive experience with both competition law
and consumer protection law sets her apart from
most practitioners; however, it is her ability to apply
this knowledge to actual business situations, and
to understand how to use this to address clients’
business goals, that truly marks her value to a client.”
