Hughes Hubbard & Reed
Nicolas has developed specific expertise in EU and U.S. sanctions and export controls, which he shares with clients in particular when creating and deploying compliance programs tailored to the type and size of their business, conducting investigations, and audits, as well as interacting with the relevant government authorities.
His expertise has also led him to advise national and international companies active in various sectors, such as energy, insurance, finance, retail and crypto-currency, on corruption and money laundering issues, which enables him to have a transversal and pragmatic overview of all aspects of compliance issues.
Prior to joining Hughes Hubbard & Reed, Nicolas worked for three years at a major French bank in Paris and New York, dealing with U.S. and EU sanctions issues. He also worked in French and Anglo-Saxon law firms where he assisted financial institutions and international groups on compliance and M&A matters.
