Intellectual Property attorneys, a regulated profession

The profession of Intellectual Property attorneys is governed by the Intellectual Property Code.

The Intellectual Property attorneys – specialising in Trademarks and Industrial Designs are legal practitioners with basic training.

They must have:

  • a legal undergraduate national degree, or
  • a degree issued by the Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI) of the University of Strasbourg, or any degree recognised as equivalent to it,
  • professional experience of at least 3 years,
  • successfully cleared a professional aptitude examination or have professional experience of eight years under the responsibility of a qualified person in intellectual property matters.

These conditions enable us, subject to meeting the criteria of background checks, to be registered in the list of qualified persons in matters of intellectual property.

Once accepted on this list, those who wish to become Intellectual Property attorneys must be registered on the list maintained by the French Office (INPI). All of them must be members of the CNCPI.

Intellectual Property attorneys for Trademarks & Industrial Designs advise and represent the firm’s clients for all issues related to the creation and legal validation of trademarks, the submission and protection strategy as well as their defence. We also intervene in matters of industrial designs, copyrights and domain names.

With our legal training, we also also capable of representing you in contract matters, in the field of intellectual property.

Since we cannot represent you before the courts, we work in close collaboration with lawyers who specialise in doing so.
