Spécialisée en droit bancaire et financier, Sophie Chevallier intervient principalement en matière de financement de projets ou de financement d'actifs en France et à l'international. Elle agit tant pour le compte d'établissements de crédit et de sociétés emprunteuses ou de sponsors, qu'ils soient français ou étrangers, que pour le compte d'entités étatiques intervenant comme garants ou assureurs-crédit.

Elle a ainsi conseillé divers groupements et diverses banques dans le cadre d'opérations de financement de projets en partenariat public-privé, qu'il s'agisse de projets bâtimentaires ou d'infrastructures de réseaux. A ce titre, elle est intervenue sur des projets de construction et d'exploitation d'universités, d'infrastructures sportives, de réseaux de télécommunication et de surveillance ou encore d'usines de traitement des déchets. En matière de financement d'actifs, elle participe régulièrement à la structuration des opérations de vente de navires civils (principalement par la société STX France S.A., ex-Chantiers de l'Atlantique) comme conseil des entités étatiques soutenant cette activité.

Enfin, Sophie Chevallier intervient ponctuellement en matière de contentieux bancaire et financier, plus particulièrement dans le cadre des contentieux sur les emprunts dits "toxiques" aux collectivités territoriales.
