Constance joined the team in January 2021 as soon as she qualified as a lawyer, after working in the legal department of the LVMH group and with Nomos law firm.

Her dual training enables her to practice both as a consultant and in litigation, mainly in the fields of literary and artistic property law, trademark law and business law, defending the interests of photographers, designers and companies in the art, luxury goods and fashion sectors, as well as in the media and communications sectors.

In this capacity, Constance assists the firm’s clients in drawing up protection strategies for their intellectual property assets (copyright and trademarks), their development (portfolio management, contracts) and represents them in any litigation (infringement, unfair competition and parasitism, opposition proceedings).

Constance also advises on corporate law (incorporation of companies, legal monitoring, sales and transfers) and litigation (disputes between partners, challenging the liability of directors), as well as on business law and commercial litigation in general.
