Pascale Moreau-Beyssade is French and is a Master graduate in Private & Business law as well as in Wealth Management.

 

She has been a corporate lawyer in law firms and in international companies for more than 10 years in Paris.

 

Then she left France for Poland where she started to lead a real estate consultant activity for people who want to invest in France but need help to carry out their project. Afterwards she relocated to London and continued from there to advise UK based foreign clients for their residential private investments in France (mostly in the Paris region).

 

As an expatriate, she noticed how it could be challenging for foreigners to buy a property in France. Language barriers, limited local knowledge, cultural differences and tax/legal constraints make things more complicated for a non France based purchaser.

 

The projects Pascale is involved in benefit from her qualification, her legal background and her extensive experience of the French property market.

 

She is now based in Paris and is able to cater for clients living anywhere.
