She represents individuals and companies on intellectual property matters including recording and publishing agreements for individual artists and composers; actor, director, producer and writer agreements in film and television; executive employment agreements; complex acquisitions and sales of entertainment catalogs; production agreements on behalf of music, television and motion picture companies, and all entertainment issues relative to the Internet.

Ms Gauberti is also a talent manager and agent, developing her roster of entertainment clients in France and the United Kingdom. 

She also counsels European and international clients in complex commercial transactions in the US, Asia and the Middle East region in a wide range of industries, including retail and consumer goods, internet & digital media, information technology, media & entertainment, music, life sciences and hospitality, gaming & leisure.
