We carry out prior art searches, patentability studies, patent applications drafting, filing and monitoring procedures before patent offices. We help you build and develop your IP strategy according to the size and objectives of your business.

Defense of your industrial activities

Defense of your industrial

activities

We carry out freedom to operate studies, infringement studies. We file and defend oppositions to patents owned by third parties before the European Patent Office. We also file oppositions before foreign offices in other countries (for example the United States, Australia, Japan) through our network of authorized counsel in each country.

In partnership with attorneys at law, we advise you in actions to defend your rights before the Paris Grande Instance Tribunal and the Paris Court of Appeal (infringement, invalidity, titularity claim). Because it is essential to adopt a coherent approach to litigation, we coordinate cross-border litigation.
