Sharon Cohen
Sharon Cohen
Lawflex France - Legal Operations Assistant

Sharon is responsible for the promotion of the French Desk. She takes care of marketing and social networking, as well as writing legal articles and recruiting lawyers alongside Jessika. Having moved between Paris, Singapore, London and Tel Aviv over the last 10 years, she has a global vision and knowledge of various cultures and languages which comes in handy when dealing with recurring international contacts.

As a student of English Law, her image of the legal profession is tarnished by the flaws it has been found to have in recent years. Too traditional and conservative, archaic, frozen in time. This is why she was quickly seduced by the Lawflex mentality. This transformation of the legal profession towards more flexibility, ease and modernity becomes undoubtedly fundamental.

Sharon started her Lawflex adventure as an intern for 2 months in the summer of 2020. She has decided to continue working there while studying Politics, Philosophy & Law (PPL) at Kings College London.
