LEGRAND LESAGE-CATEL lawyers fully master all legal proceedings pertaining to Intellectual and more especially, Industrial Property rights.

Such legal disputes are complex matters and require deep understanding of the rules governing the remit and scope of adjudicatory bodies both nationally and internationally, the competent courts and procedural rules to be complied when lodging formal claims.

The determination of strategies to be adopted, the analysis of title to intellectual property and of its validity, concerns relating to counterfeit goods, the levels of evidence required in support of allegations of infringement claims, including applications for court ordered confiscations, Bailiff evidential reports and injunctions to produce exhibits, the definition of lines of defence in infringement actions, and assessment of the prejudice suffered—these are some of the many specialist areas that fall within the remit of LEGRAND LESAGE-CATEL law firm.

These skills are also brought to bear in the field of patented inventions (legal disputes over validity of entitlements and infringement lawsuits).

Such skills are also drawn upon in the resolution of disputes involving trademarks, domain names, designs and models, as well as in literary and artistic property matters (copyright and software).
