Positioning

In Paris, our team of six lawyers assists its clients in the valuation, exploitation and defense of their intellectual property rights. The team has extensive experience in managing and resolving patent and trademark litigation in a multi-jurisdictional context.

The team has also developed a recognized expertise in litigation that combine competition law and intellectual property issues, particularly in the area of standard essential patents. In coordination with the Competition and Arbitration practices of Linklaters, and with various offices (i.e. London, Frankfurt, New York, Beijing) the team has developed a global offer for negotiating and licensing standard-essential patents. The team is notably involved in French patent litigation involving such standard-essential patents.

We also support our clients in the areas of Technology, Media and Telecommunications and cover the entire spectrum of regulatory and contractual matters to meet the needs of telecommunications and information technology players. In addition, we assist our customers in compliance programs with the new Data Protection Regulations.

The team is eventually renowned for its ability to assist clients in all intellectual property and technology law issues that arise in M&A transactions, capital markets, and complex restructuring by collaborating closely with other departments and offices of the firm.
