Headed by 2 well-recognized IP specialists, Grégoire Desrousseaux and François Pochart, our team is most well-known for : 

Exceptional capabilities in patent litigation – With a team of 2 Partners and 14 Associates, including 10 European patent attorneys and 10 Attorneys-at-Law, we are one of the only firm in the French market that can provide clients such a high level of technical understanding and the capabilities to act in litigation at both the national and European levels. Over 50% of the IP law team’s work includes patent litigation before courts in France, as well as before European courts and administrative authorities, particularly in connection with opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office (EPO). Our work covers infringement/nullity action, compensation for employees’ invention, and appeals against the decisions of the French Patent Office.

Precedent-setting solutions - Our team frequently leads the way to shapping first-of-kind solutions to complex intellectual property issues and disputes. 

Strategic advice and contracts - We are also involved in providing strategic advice and drafting documentation related to valuing, protecting and transferring IP rights.
