Our Trademarks and Design Patents Department was initially created in order to respond to the requests from our patent clients, so as to ensure the management and the protection of their trademark and/or industrial design portfolios.
The Trademarks and Design Patents Department then expanded and now manages various trademark and design patents portfolios of French and foreign companies, in diverse fields such as microelectronics, pharmaceuticals, medical research, eHealth,… and also meets the demands of somes institutions, in particular academics.
It also ensures the drafting of acts such as assignment deeds, licensing contracts, coexistence agreements, and joint ownership agreements.
Thanks to a rich experience in litigation, the Trademarks and Design Patents Department has also developed valuable skills in the management of pre-litigation negotiations and the conduction of amicable transactions in numerous cases, knowing how to best evaluate the opportunities represented by the litigation procedure offered in each case.
The senior members of our Trademarks and Design Patents Department, whether they have a legal or engineering education, are all Intellectual Property Counsels before the French Patent Office (INPI), Professional Representatives before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), responsible for managing the EU trade mark and the registered Community design, and Professional Representatives before the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for the Madrid System for the International Registration of Marks and the Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs.
