Career

Alexandra Berg-Moussa joined August Debouzy in 2000 after having spent a few years in Montreal.

She works as Partner in the Technologies, Media and Intellectual Property department and in the Competition, Consumer and Distribution department, in which she deals mainly with non-litigation and contractual work in IT and new technology matters and in commercial, distribution and consumer matters, for French and foreign entities.

Having had the opportunity to be seconded in-house with certain clients exercising their activities in various fields, Alexandra has developed an expertise which aims at positioning the legal assistance as a real partner of the business needs and constraints of our clients. Her work for companies located upstream in the chain of the commercial relationship (manufacturers, suppliers, publishers, editors, service providers) as well as downstream (wholesalers, distributors, resellers, retailers, end-users), in strictly B2B sectors as well as B2C, gives her a global and cross-functional vision of the matters entrusted to her. Alexandra also teaches Distribution Law at Sciences Po Paris.
