Claire brings with her a wealth of skills and experience, particularly in IP, IT and Media. "Since Claire joined MOLITOR in 2007, she has helped us build a fine reputation in IP, IT and Media in Luxembourg and abroad", said Michel Molitor, Managing Partner. "Her promotion is part of our overall strategy to increase our presence as one of the leading Luxembourg business law firms both locally and internationally. We congratulate Claire on this achievement within her career at MOLITOR."


Claire Leonelli heads MOLITOR's IP, IT and Media practice, advising local and international clients from various sectors on a wide range of issues including copyright and trademark issues, data protection issues, IT law, e-commerce, advertising law and unfair competition.

Chambers Europe identified her this year as a "key individual" and states that she "is praised by peers and clients for her dedicated IP and TMT practice. One source says: "She is very technical and maintains good contacts with clients. You can really trust her."

Under her leadership, MOLITOR's IP, IT & Media practice has been praised in The Legal 500 EMEA 2013 for its "response times, knowledge, appropriateness of advice and value for money".
