TRADEMARK LAW


Protecting what sets you apart !



We provide a comprehensive service in trademark-related matters: obtaining rights with the offices, assisting you in their commercial use, drawing up the agreements that protect you and defending your rights in administrative proceedings or before the competent courts.

Administrative proceedings before the INPI (French trademarks) and EUIPO (European Union trademarks)

We defend your interests before the offices (INPI, EUIPO) by initiating any administrative proceedings (opposition, invalidity or forfeiture action) against trademarks that may cause confusion with your rights and/or by representing you in such proceedings.

Litigation in France

We represent you in all pre-litigation or legal proceedings relating to trademarks: claims and/or infringement actions before the competent courts. At the start of the infringement litigation, we implement and organise the specific existing fact-finding procedure in the matter: the saisie-contrefaçon. In this respect, we have developed a national network of bailiffs enabling us to intervene effectively throughout France to provide evidence of the infringement of your rights.

Obtaining rights

We obtain your trademark rights before the competent offices in France (INPI, i.e. the french IP office), in Europe (EUIPO) or internationally (before the WIPO i.e. World Intellectual Property Organisation or through our correspondents).

Managing your rights

Our lP rights managers monitor and manage your trademarks on a daily basis. They’ll remind you of the various deadlines for extending and renewing them, as well as on other matters.

Trademark searches / Monitoring

Before filing, we carry out prior trademark search to check that third parties do not hold any prior rights to the sign used to create your trademark. Once the rights have been obtained, we also monitor the registers to detect any violation of your rights.

Agreements

We assist you in negotiating and drafting agreements concerning the commercial use of the trademarks (confidentiality agreements, licence agreements, transfer agreements, coexistence agreements). Over the last thirty years, we have developed a worldwide network of partners, patent attorneys, IP legal experts and managers who enable us to operate in most countries. In the event of international disputes, we help you to coordinate the actions under way in the different countries.

Wine brands

We have developed specific expertise in the field of wine trademarks which, although they largely fall within the scope of common trademark law, have significant legal characteristics (regulation of "château" trademarks and certain terms).

International administrative and judicial litigation

Over the past 30 years, we have developed a global network of partners, patent attorneys, attorneys at law, lawyers and IP law managers who allow us to operate in most countries. In the event of international litigation, we help you coordinate the actions and / or defenses in progress in the different countries.
