Gaëlle Bonnet joined the firm in 2018 after her final internship and was sworn in the same year.

She is the winner of the 2018 Violette Gorny Prize for the best young lawyer in family law and the first runner up of the IAFL 2024 Prize for the best young international lawyer.

She holds a dual degree in French and Italian law.

Her experience of living in Italy made her particularly aware of the issue of expatriation.

She has taught family law at the University of Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne and regularly teaches as member of the Family Commission of the Paris Bar.

She has extensive experience of children’s relocation cases.

In particular, she advises the firm's clients on all the technical issues raised by the international nature of these situations (lis pendens, questions of international jurisdiction, application of foreign law before the French courts, exequatur, etc.).

With all the empathy required for family disputes, she endeavours to provide clients with clear explanations of the complex legal issues they encounter, so that they can approach their dispute with peace of mind.

She co-authors the France chapter of the ICLG (International Comparative Law Guide) with Diane Sussman. She is also a member of two international networks: the International Association of Young Lawyers and the Union Internationale des Avocats.

She practices in French, English and Italian.
