About Mathieu

Mathieu is a terrier: he will stop at nothing to defend the interests of his clients. Even in his free time, Mathieu seeks challenges: endurance sports in the mountains or Bikram yoga. He acts competently in situations where there is little time left to act. He either takes action to prevent situations from getting worse he or reverses accomplished facts, but his aim is always to get back to the negotiating table.
