- We have excellent and reputed clients involved in high level technologies

- IMPORTANT: Please note that the "asking price" indicated below corresponds to a 10% stake only as a guide before negotiation, an indicative value between a minimum and a maximum value. It may vary according to the volume of EP files entrusted and be higher for a moderately active partner,

Possibility to accommodate partners during visits, in a lovely property in the countryside of Aix-en-Provence, 10 minutes from downtown, including a large house under renovation with a very high standard (5 bedrooms with bathrooms and an outdoor swimming pool heated from April to October, and one salaried cleaning lady). (Home Based)
Competition:
Due to the growing number of local boutique IP firms with average technical level and experience, we favor an expansion at the international level (European cases from non-EU countries) rather than local. It should be noted that our current clientele already has an international profile since we work for sites that are located in Scotland, Finland, the Netherlands, etc. We have also participated in international litigation against major companies involving patents drafted, filed and prosecuted by our firm.
Growth & Expansion:
The firm has a capacity to handle twice the number of files or cases it currently handles (EP patent applications, EU trade mark applications, litigation cases) and can generate significant profits, guaranteeing a return on investment to the active foreign shareholder partner entrusting us with European cases. We are currently specializing in cross-border litigation in the EU in preparation for the entry into force Unified Patent Court Agreement.
Support & Training:
Our partners are Patent Attorneys before the European Patent Office (EPO), Authorised Representatives before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), Intellectual Property Counsels before the French Patent and Trademark Office (FPTO). We provide complete legal services related to patents and trademarks in Europe. Currently we have 88 clients.

Seeking partnership.
