With regard to trademarks and designs, Gaël’s assistance to the Firm’s clients extends from management of major portfolios, to obtaining, exploiting and defending of IP rights, both internationally and in France. In addition to involvement in pre-litigation and litigation proceedings, and portfolio audits, he also offers expertise in domain names, providing advice and assistance ranging from filing to recovery of domain names, as well as during mediation phases and in arbitration or alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures before the World Intellectual Property Organization-WIPO.
