France / IP Firms: Prosecution (2024)


“Cabinet Beau de Loménie is one of the sharpest prosecution outfits on the French market, thanks to its technically versatile team who are on hand to service domestic and international clientele of any size. For those looking to secure their rights in the fields of mechanics, metallurgy and physics, Didier Intès and Pierre Balesta are the key names to note. “Didier is a quality-driven practitioner with a solid knowledge of intellectual property and a passion for patents. He is engaged, trustworthy and responsive.” Equally strong on the science, Balesta puts in brilliant performances in opposition proceedings at the EUIPO, where he showcases his refined oral advocacy skill and persuasive arguments. He earns praise from one satisfied patron for his “efficient and diligent approach as well as his refreshingly direct and helpful advice, which aids clients to make difficult commercial decisions”. Well versed in working with cutting-edge technologies, Pierre-Louis Désormière devises and implements international patent strategy for companies leading the way in the aeronautics, aerospace and medical industries. Creating bespoke strategies to secure patent protection, François Delumeau and Philippe Hubert do a superb job at seeing patents through to successful grant, managing portfolios and capitalising on opportunities to commercialise their customers’ assets.” (2024)

The firm also has a thriving international practice which was bolstered by the opening of the Geneva office in 2022. Oppositions, revocations and invalidity actions are one of the group’s specialities, with Emmanuelle Machinet and Aurélia Marie regularly appearing before the INPI. Machinet benefits from her experience working at the INPI before entering private practice, while Marie spent time in-house at Renault prior to joining the outfit.” (2024)
