Aurélia Grignon joined Soulez Larivière & Associés in 2007, immediately after she was admitted to the Paris Bar in 2007. She was made a partner in January 2016.
Aurélia has a highly international profile and is fully bilingual. In 2000 she was accepted on a joint degree course in French and English, which included two years of study in the UK. In 2004, she obtained a postgraduate degree (maîtrise) in French and English law from the Paris 1 Sorbonne University and an LLB in French and English law from King’s College, London, making her perfectly equipped to handle international cases. She also obtained a postgraduate degree (maîtrise) in public law from Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne University in 2005.
Since joining the firm, Aurélia has developed specialist expertise in criminal law cases for corporate clients (covering manslaughter and unintentional injury, sub-contracting, employment of undeclared workers, harassment, abuse of authority and favouritism). Another core practice area is aviation, with a focus on issues associated with accidents and product liability litigation in the aeronautical sector. From 2008 to 2012 she worked alongside Daniel Soulez Larivière and Astrid Mignon Colombet on the Concorde crash, and regularly advises on complex issues in the aviation sector.
In addition, Aurélia has a solid understanding of the management of industrial disasters; she worked on the sinking of the Erika from 2007 to 2012 and often handles group litigation.
Aurélia also regularly handles commercial disputes and contractual liability cases.
At the same time, she has assisted clients in a large number of general criminal law cases, often representing them before the criminal courts. She has acted for a number of years as a court-appointed attorney and an on-call criminal defence attorney with the Paris Bar, which has allowed her to deepen her knowledge of the criminal courts and increase her trial experience while honing her skills in the management of urgent matters.
