Contracts



Our pluridisciplinary team negotiates and drafts your contracts covering your industrial property rights.







OUR CONTRACT SERVICES:




THE CONTRACT IS FUNDAMENTAL


A contract is the instrument that allows a person or a corporation to benefit from a right (by the sale, purchase or license of a trademark or patent) and defines your relations with your partners (development contract, collaboration, working arrangement, licensing, etc.)

The signature of a contract thus constitutes a particularly significant commitment which, if not complied with, will be severely penalized by the courts. Therefore, the contract should not contain clauses that cannot be fulfilled or are prejudicial to your interests.



CONTRACTS: A SPECIFIC EXPERTISE IS REQUIRED


The drafting of a contract requires specialized knowledge of industrial property law and case law. Only very specialized training and experience in industrial property makes it possible to benefit from the characteristics of the various rights, and avoid the many pitfalls awaiting the inexperienced (plurality of protections, concepts of territory, etc.). Also, the presence of specialised IP Attorneys in our team means that we can validate certain points that may have a technical impact (collaboration on technical developments, fate of any improvements made under licensing or sale contracts, etc.).

Moreover, details on employee’s invention rights require special expertise in order to draft the appropriate clauses of an employment contract so that the interests of both parties are met in compliance with legal obligations.



LEGAL EXPERTISE, BUSINESS EXPERIENCE


Our experience and knowledge of the business world enable us to advise you on your specific business and develop a strategic approach suited to your objectives and your constraints.

Furthermore, the technical expertise of our engineers specialized in Industrial Property lend vital support to the litigation procedure concerning industrial products.



NONDISCLOSURE OBLIGATION – ATTORNEY PRIVILEGE


Like attorneys at law, as French Patent Trademark Attorney (Conseil en Propriété Industrielle), we have a strict obligation to ensure nondisclosure compliance in all our dealings with our customers. This obligation goes well beyond just professional ethical considerations and is covered by statute law.

Moreover, our status ensures that you benefit from client attorney privilege. This means that in the event of legal conflicts or disputes, you cannot be constrained to produce sensitive documents that we might have exchanged for use by the opposing party or court proceedings.
