Benedicte A. Boutrouille

Associate Attorney
Coral Gables, Florida

French-born, I grew up in the U.S. as of the age of eight and studied at N.Y.U. for my undergraduate degree.

I obtained my Juris Doctor degree from Tulane Law School, whereupon I did my summer internship at the boutique immigration law firm of Weiss, Alden & Polo.

Upon being admitted to the Florida Bar in 2008, I joined the Miami office of the law firm Brown Sims, where I practiced Longshore law having specialized in maritime law at Tulane Law School.

In 2010, I moved to Reunion Island, which is a French department in the Indian Ocean where I first worked for an accounting firm before obtaining my equivalency as a French attorney.

For three years, I worked as an associate in a French law firm, handling all general corporate and employment law matters for both French-speaking and English-speaking businesses established in the Indian Ocean region from small- to medium-sized companies to multinational corporations.

In 2017-2018, I worked in the Paris office of the English-Canadian law firm Gowling, advising international companies on employment law matters in French and English, before returning to South Florida in 2018.

As an attorney licensed to practice both in the US (Florida) and in France (Paris), my current objective is to advise international companies on immigration, corporate, employment, and other comparative international law matters.
