Salomé Lemasson joins Outer Temple Chambers

International white collar specialist Salomé Lemasson joins Outer Temple Chambers

We are delighted to welcome Salomé Lemasson to Outer Temple Chambers as a professional associate within the Business Crime, Regulation and Sanctions team.

Salomé is qualified to practise in France and Germany, admitted to the Paris Bar (2014) and Berlin Bar (2020). Prior to setting up independent practice in 2023, she worked for law firms in Paris and Berlin (Gibson Dunn, Hogan Lovells, and AL & Associés).

Her practice focuses on representing top tier companies and high net worth individuals in sensitive, high-stake matters involving international sanctions, fraud, corruption, and money laundering. Salomé is particularly active in the field of sanctions, and regularly assists and represents individuals, organizations, and major international conglomerates in this area of law.

In addition, Salomé has strong expertise in defending clients in investigations by Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs). Her work in this area includes representing large industrial conglomerates targeted by parallel World Bank and African Development Bank investigations into alleged fraud and corruption related to infrastructure projects in West Africa, South-East Asia and the Indian Ocean. She is accustomed to conducting negotiations with MDBs (including with the World Bank’s Integrity Vice Presidency or with the European Investment Bank) over allegations of corruption and fraud.

Salomé is an active member of the International Bar Association, the European Criminal Bar Association and the Women in White Collar Defence Association. She said of her arrival, “I am looking forward to joining the Business Crime team at Outer Temple as a Professional Associate. I am sure that my European practice will complement the team and that many new and exciting opportunities will arise from this partnership.”

Practice Director Sam Carter said, “Salomé is a brilliant addition and we are delighted to welcome her to Outer Temple Chambers. She will be a huge asset, particularly enhancing our offering for International and business crime matters.”

Alex Haines, of the Business Crime, Regulation and Sanctions team, has worked with Salomé in the past and said “There are few practitioners who can back up the claim they are experts in MDBs and their respective debarment frameworks; Salomé is one of them. In addition, she brings EU sanctions experience meaning that our Sanctions team at OTC has full capability across UK, US, EU and UN sanctions”.
