Anne Pansard, Business Attorney
Originally from Lille, France, Anne Pansard has over 18 years of experience working in the United States as a business attorney. She was trained in France, Great Britain and the United States.
Anne worked for a decade for large international law firms in New York and Chicago, and became General Counsel of a U.S. Ag Biotech sorghum company in 2014. In that role, she facilitated the rapid growth of the company, working closely with its executives, sales force, seed breeders, production managers and engineers. That in-house experience gives her the ability to approach her clients’ needs in a realistic and pragmatic manner.
In 2018, the company was purchased. As an active member of the Chicago international business community for many years, Anne realized that foreign entrepreneurs face particular challenges to manage their operations in the United States. Even for bilingual clients, the U.S. federal and state legal systems are complex, and managing a company remotely is particularly challenging. Having a reliable and knowledgeable business-oriented legal advisor who understands your culture is a great asset. To respond to that need, Anne founded the firm in 2018. Her goal is to help her clients achieve their business goals and manage their U.S. affiliate efficiently and in compliance with local laws.
