My extensive practice at Bird & Bird in patent matters has allowed me to gain a particular insight into the pharmaceuticals, engineering and electronics sectors. Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work not only on complex technical matters, but also on very sensitive legal issues. Several matters addressed standard-essential highly complex technologies in the telecommunications sector. I regularly contribute to the advice we provide to one of the world's fastest growing generic pharmaceutical companies on its patent and regulatory needs in France.My practice also covers trademark, designs, author right and unfair competition disputes and agreements in the luxury and retail sector.Prior to joining the Bird & Bird IP team in 2011, I have completed several internships in large corporates, law firms and at the French IP Court. These internships have provided me a unique overview of a wide array of IP issues and allowed for a better understanding of our client's expectations.
