Neli Sochirca is a French Attorney at law (Avocat), practicing at the Paris Bar. She initially specialized in European, International and business law, after graduating from Nice and Paris Universities. Following several experiences as a lawyer in major business law firms, Neli entered the Paris bar and began her attorney practice specialising in consumer and product law. This allowed her to tie her first contact with animal welfare issues, making her eager to develop her knowledge in animal law. Hard personal work and an animal law course in the University of Limoges allowed her to achieve this goal. In 2018, Neli decided to quit her "traditional" legal practice and officially dedicate her work to animal law. She thus founded her own legal firm in Paris - Animalaw, and she is looking forward to this new adventure for her, and for animals.
