Areas of practice: The firm represents clients from a wide range of industry sectors: aeronautics, biology and biotechnology, chemistry, electricity, electronics, information and technology, materials science, mechanical engineering, pharmaceuticals, physical sciences and semi-conductors.

Santarelli’s patent and trade mark attorneys are fully qualified and experienced in the following fields:

Patents: Santarelli’s patent attorneys review inventions, and draft and prosecute patent applications in French and in English. All of the lawyers started their careers as graduate scientists and engineers, and assist and advise each client, regardless of size or field of activity, in securing and exploiting patent rights.

Trade marks: Santarelli’s trade mark practitioners handle all aspects of trade mark law, including: clearance searching and availability analysis; trade mark protection strategies; trade mark application and renewal procedures for all jurisdictions; drafting, vetting and negotiating trade mark agreements; trade mark and related unfair competition opinion work and litigation; auditing trade mark portfolios for investors; IPOs; and mergers and acquisitions.

Industrial designs: Santarelli provides a full range of services for the protection of industrial designs. A first step is to establish with each client a protection strategy, with or without involving design registration. This, in particular, involves studying the nature of the creation, the aspects susceptible to being protected, choosing the means for protection through registration and the type of applications in the countries concerned.

Domain names: Santarelli takes charge of the formalities for reservation of international top-level domain names (such as .com and .net) and/or national top-level domain names (such as .fr, .mo or .be). It also provides monitoring services, reservation and maintenance services.
