As an associate in the French IP team, I work mainly in the field of brand management.
I assist our clients in their strategies and issues related to intellectual property protection. I advise companies on the daily management of their trademark and design portfolios, involving, amongst other things, making availability searches, supervising the filing, the renewal and the recordal of trademarks and designs made by our paralegals, advising clients concerning trademark and design strategy. I also make audits.
I also assist our clients in the defense of their intellectual property assets (trademarks, copyrights, designs and domain name). In particular, I advise them in the context of pre-litigation in intellectual property matters and in the context of negotiations; in addition, I manage opposition proceedings and all other proceedings before the French office and the EUIPO.
I work in close cooperation with Bird & Bird offices abroad to protect the French client's IP interests. Furthermore, I assist Bird & Bird's international offices, notably Bird & Bird UK, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Singapore, to manage IP matters in France.
Before joining Bird & Bird in 2021, I worked as an associate in a law firm in Paris for 3 years.
