After his studies at the Universities of Lausanne and Zurich and an LL.M. in European Law at the Institute for European Studies in Brussels, Julien worked for two renowned law firms in Geneva and Lausanne and passed his Bar examination in 2006.
Before acting as counsel and expert for the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation and then, for several years, as Senior Legal Counsel for Switzerland’s second largest airport, Julien was awarded a postgraduate diploma at McGill Institute of Air & Space Law and, later, a doctoral thesis at the University of Lausanne in what used to be – and are still, among others – his fields of predilection: air navigation & infrastructure law, technology law, State liability law, international law in general and domestic public law.
While graduating from the Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration (economy and law of regulation), he developed a strong interest for medical law and, since then, has been, beside his activity for everwise, accompanying and counselling Swiss and foreign clients in various regulatory matters, ranging from aviation & space to medical through general contract law, with the firm objective to avoid wherever possible any unnecessary and expensive litigation.
In parallel, Julien taught tourism & travel law for many years at the École supérieure de tourisme & outdoor, where he developed a full course dedicated to the legal aspects of the tourism industry in Switzerland and abroad. Julien still occasionally intervenes as a seasonal speaker at the EPFL in a course on the regulation aspects of cardio-wearables and implantables.
Julien is a Board Member of a Swiss public utility foundation active in the medical research & development field; he holds other positions as Board Member (for instance for the Swiss Aerodromes Association) and is also the co-founder and director of a Swiss charity using aviation to provide humanitarian relief around the world.

everwise is part of the Swiss Triple Impact Directory
We are proud to be listed in the Swiss Triple Impact Directory (STI), a national directory of companies taking concrete steps towards a sustainable future. STI is co-initiated by B Lab Switzerland , a non-profit organisation that uses business as a force for good, the Swiss Confederation through its Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the Global Compact Switzerland and Liechtenstein network.
The programme allows companies to measure their impact with respect to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to identify ways of improvement to be implemented in a very concrete way. everwise is now registered in the Swiss Triple Impact Directory.
Within the framework of the STI programme, we were able to identify the most important impactful SDGs for our company and develop a concrete action plan. These targets were then submitted to a review process in which B Lab Switzerland examined the impact and relevance of each sustainability commitment, as well as the detailed action plan.
We are conscious of the privileged role we play alongside entrepreneurs, companies and institutions, actively contributing to their strategic decisions.
Our inclusion in the STI directory is a recognition of our efforts to contribute to a climate and socially conscious future and formalises some of our commitments.
As part of the STI, everwise highlighted the following commitments:
- By 2024, we implement a practice that incorporates one or more ESG sustainability impact elements in the advice and support of 80% of our clients, as well as in all of our legal training and/or awareness events.
