Intellectual property: Patent and trade mark attorneys Tier 1

Casalonga stands out for its deep bench of experts, its extensive office network in France, and its combination of trade mark and patent attorneys along with litigators.

With more than 150 years of history, Casalonga is a leading European IP law firm of more than 120 lawyers, patent and trademark attorneys, legal experts and engineers with offices in France (including Paris, Grenoble, Toulouse, Lyon, Montpellier, Beaune), in Spain (Alicante) and in Germany (Munich), as well as an international network of correspondents worldwide.

 

Casalonga offers its clients a full range of intellectual property legal services, including prosecution, counselling and litigation covering all types of IP rights (trademarks, patents, designs, domain names, copyright) and related laws (unfair competition, distribution, economic rights). Our attorneys have extensive experience in proceedings before the trademark offices and regularly plead before the courts.

Casalonga differs from other French IP firms in patent litigation as it is the only firm providing its clients with attorneys at law and patent and trademark attorneys working together within the same firm. This innovation gives Casalonga clients a true advantage in patent and trademark litigation.

 

Casalonga is especially well known in life science litigation with the team around Gérard Dossmann (patent attorney), Marianne Gabriel (attorney at law), Arnaud Casalonga (attorney at law) and Jean-Baptiste Lecoeur (both attorney at law and patent attorney). The firm is developing a strong expertise in electronic (FRAND) litigation around Francis Zapalowicz (patent attorney), Caroline Casalonga (attorney at law), Marianne Gabriel (attorney at law) and Pascaline Vincent (attorney at law).

 

The trademark team is very well known both for prosecution and litigation. The mix of attorneys at law and trademark attorneys provides Casalonga clients with more balanced advices that consider the litigation risks and the team can follow the matter to court without changing firm.

  • A customer driven service with a dedicated team of lawyers and assistants that provides customized services depending on the client’s specific needs and requests. For each client, we establish a strategy adapted to the stakes, economic interests and financial constraints, allowing the best support within controlled budget.

 

  • Innovative services : Our thinking and development strategies are all driven towards the clients: what new service or new way of proposing our services would make our clients’ business and IP protection easier, more cost-efficient and more effective?

 

  • Long-term commitment to our clients: We build long term confident based relationships with our clients.

 

  • Global services with a selection of IP firms in each country and a strong international in-house department of lawyers from the principal jurisdictions (US, Canada, China, Germany, Spain, covering most of the South/Latin American countries). Our international department enables us to better advise our clients globally as well as cost effectively.
