Sophie Vermeille

Sophie Vermeille founded and manages the Institute Rules for Growth / Droit & Croissance, a French think tank where faculty members from various universities work together with practitioners mainly in the field of corporate finance / restructuring / capital markets.

The Rules for Growth Institute aims to:

-       improve the attractiveness of the French/European legal regime by assisting researchers in developing research projects,

-       raise public awareness of the fact that France is lagging behind in terms of cross-disciplinary research in law, economics and finance and that this situation engenders negative economic growth.

Sophie is a French qualified lawyer. She holds a master degree from Paris II University and from King’s College London.

From 2005 to 2011, Sophie was a restructuring and corporate lawyer in various international law firms (Clifford Chance, Weil Gotshal Manges and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer).

Sophie is a PhD Candidate in the law and economics department of Paris II University (Panthéon-Assas).

Sophie is also the CEO of Admotio Neo, a company which provides optimal strategic solutions to the evolving challenges facing businesses and the French economy.
