Intellectual Property

Our Intellectual Property regularly advises clients on complex transactions involving intellectual property rights (disposal of business with a global portfolio of brands), the conclusion of international and national licensing agreements, as well as on the litigation related to trademark protection both within the European Union and abroad (actions concerted with the French diplomatic representations abroad and industrial property consulting firms, with customs), and infringement action and unfair competition before the French civil and criminal courts.

For over 20 years, Bruno Martin has been supporting private companies and public institutions as well as individuals in the protection, use, development and defence of their creations. Cédric Frenel is listed by the French National Institute of Intellectual Property as IT experts, authorised to carry out pre-diagnostics of companies or local authorities in the field of intellectual property.

Our Intellectual Property expertise is led by 2 partners, Bruno Martin and Cédric Frenel. Composed of specialised and experienced lawyers, our team has a dual practice of legal advice and litigation.
