Christophe has led and negotiated with the European Commission the preparation and adoption of pharmaceutical association agreements, argued cases before the CHMP and European authorities with a view to the authorisation of different products, and guided numerous appeals against authorisations or denials of authorisations.

His primary practice areas are: regulatory/market access, competition/distribution, product liability, data protection/electronic communication, and civil/commercial/criminal litigation.
