Renaud Beauchard is a bi-jural attorney licensed to practice law in France and the United States. He holds law degrees from Cambridge, Tulane and Poitiers, and has both practiced and taught law. Mr. Beauchard is a French national fluent in English. In 1993-1994, Mr. Beauchard received his Bachelor of Law and then his Post-Graduate Degree in Private Law from the University of Poitiers. In 1997, Mr. Beauchard received his LL.M. from Cambridge University. Between 1994 and 1998 (excepting his time at Cambridge), Mr. Beauchard served as a case analyst for Juris Data, France's major legal database. He also taught well-attended employment law and civil procedure courses at the University of Poitiers. In 1999, Mr. Beauchard joined Holman Fenwick & Willan as an associate. In that capacity, he managed admiralty, cargo, collision, international trade and insurance litigation, and handled a criminal case involving maritime pollution. Later in 1999, Mr. Beauchard moved to Ménard Quimbert and Partners, where he worked on like matters, as well as on maritime and ship building contracts, a complex antitrust dispute, and litigation concerning plant-acquisition, employment and personal injury matters. He also separately served pro bono as a public defender in Nantes for criminal and deportation cases. In 2000, Mr. Beauchard was named a senior associate at Bouloy Grellet & Godin. In this capacity, he argued before courts and arbitral tribunals, assisted in the drafting of a complex arbitral award, performed vessel and aircraft arrests, and enforced foreign judgments. He assisted in major environmental litigation (such as the Erika spill case) and in the management of the "Mont Blanc" case, which involved a tunnel collapse involving dozens of fatalities and the multi-year closure of a major French highway. In 2004, Mr. Beauchard left France to undertake the JD program at Tulane University in New Orleans. Owing to the ravages of Hurricane Katrina, he also attended Denver University's College of Law for part of his program. While at Tulane, Mr. Beauchard assisted Catholic Charities of New Orleans with translations and asylum hearings on behalf of francophone African refugees. He interned with Judge Homberg Wicker of Louisiana's 24th Judicial District, for whom he prepared bench memoranda in preparation for hearings. He later interned with the Office of the Colorado Attorney General, for which he drafted motions and memoranda with respect to a major land dispute and administrative law matters. After completing his JD program in 2006, Mr. Beauchard served for a short time as a law clerk with Catholic Charities, dealing with asylum and Violence Against Women Act immigration applications. In 2007, Mr. Beauchard moved to Washington, D.C., where he was named Director of International Business Development at the Washington Times. In this capacity, Mr. Beauchard traveled to West Africa and gained valuable insights into government and business concerns there. In July 2008, Mr. Beauchard decided to return to the law. In March 2009, Mr. Beauchard was appointed as a Consultant to the Millennium Challenge Corporation. He has in this capacity provided technical assistance for the Access to Justice Component of the Compact Agreement between the Government of Benin and the Millennium Challenge Corporation. In August 2009, Mr. Beauchard joined the World Bank's Office of Evaluation and Suspension as a Consultant. In this capacity, Mr. Beauchard assists the Evaluation and Suspension Officer in the consideration of recommended sanctions against allegedly fraudulent, corrupt, coercive or obstructionist companies or individuals. His publications include the chapter on the subject of insurance for sailing boats in "Private Individuals and Their Insurance Contracts." Publisher: Litec. 1st edition, 2003 and the Chapter on the subject of vessel arrests in professional textbook, "The Theory and Practice of Enforcing Judgements and Rights." Publisher: Dalloz 2nd edition, 2001 (3d. ed. 2004, 4th ed. 2006, 5th ed. 2007, 6th ed. 2009).
