Admitted to the Paris Bar in 2012, counsel Lucie Pernet is a member of Gide’s Public Law, Energy & Environment practice group and specialises in public property law.
She assists and represents public entities and private operators (property companies, developers) in the development, implementation and litigation of complex projects (tertiary buildings, commercial complexes, sports facilities, transport infrastructures, coliving residences) in matters of town planning and development.
She advises on both regulatory and operational issues: town planning authorisations, commercial town planning and, more generally, all administrative authorisations required to carry out real estate projects (high-rise building regulations, "activity" approvals, change of use, etc.), and public information and participation procedures (environmental assessment, consultation, public enquiry). She also assists her clients with issues of public domain and land control (expropriation, pre-emption).
She has also developed a strong litigation practice in the fields of town planning, commercial town planning and land control, before both administrative and judicial courts.
Lucie is a graduate of Paris II Panthéon-Assas University (Master's degree in public management and administration), Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne University (public business law), and the public sector law institute (Institut de Droit Public des Affaires).
She co-wrote Opérations d’urbanisme (“Les Intégrales” collection), published in October 2014, and teaches advanced town planning law at the University of Paris 13.
