Marjolaine Arès

My free time is shared between peaceful moments spent with family in nature and the bustle of the city, where I especially enjoy discovering restaurants from various cultures with friends.

The values of the Collective and the freedom to model my practice according to my aspirations convinced me to join Delegatus. With my notarial touch, I offer my colleagues and our clients innovative, distinct and complementary legal services.
