Alexandre-M. BRAUN is a graduate of the Universities of Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas and Versailles Saint-Quentin en Yvelines. During his studies, he was a student representative on the Board of Directors of the University of Paris 2, as well as on the C.N.E.S.E.R (Conseil National de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche), where he sat more specifically in the disciplinary panel, the appeal jurisdiction of the University disciplinary boards..

Before becoming a lawyer, he worked as a lawyer  at the Southeast Asian headquarters of a large French company in Singapore. There, he fought against counterfeiting.

After becoming a lawyer, he worked for several years with a prestigious Parisian law firm. He was elected Secretary of the Paris Bar Conference  for the year 2006, after a famous eloquence contest.

In 2007, he founded his own law firm, mainly dedicated to Criminal Law :

  • Business criminal law  (abuse of corporate assets, illegal exercise of regulated activities, fraud…)
  • General criminal law (offences against persons and property, violence, theft, criminal cases…)
  • Defense of victims (assistance before the courts, compensation for damages…)
  • Communication and intellectual property law, particularly in their penal aspects (defamation, insults, counterfeiting, invasion of privacy and presumption of innocence)
  • Disciplinary law  (in particular disciplinary board for doctors and health professions, disciplinary board for students…)

He assists companies (particularly in the fields of communication, de la creation, de la security, de la health), company managers, self-employed workers and liberal professions, individuals, and associations.

He regularly pleads in Paris, but also before all the courts of the Tribunaux de région parisienne Paris region (Versailles, Bobigny, Nanterre, Evry, Créteil, Fontainebleau, Melun… He has also worked in all the courts of the Paris region (Versailles, Bobigny, Nanterre, Evry, Créteil, Fontainebleau, Melun, etc.) and throughout France (Lille, Strasbourg, Marseille, Lyon, Bordeaux, Nantes, Montpellier, Niort, Troyes, Beauvais, Amiens, Senlis, Châteauroux, Nevers, etc…).

He often acts as the counsel of foreign nationals involved in criminal cases in France, or as French counsel in international cases having a French component. Thanks to his international background, he communicates easily in English and clearly explains the French proceedings to his clients from abroad.

His international past cases include:

– Defense of an American movie director charged with rape,

– Pleading before the Luxembourg Supreme Court,

– Assisting a client for an interrogatory by the Prosecution in Switzerland,

– Providing Counsels regarding the French law for a major bribery case in Norway,
