Protecting our clients’ creations (literary, artistic, musical, audiovisual, architectural, etc.) for companies or individuals is one of our firm’s recognized areas of expertise.

We operate in the art, fashion, luxury goods, music, publishing, advertising, film and creative sectors in the broadest sense.

As advisors, our firm works to preserve and secure your rights in the context of the exploitation of your creations, in particular: commissioning or service contracts, contracts for the acquisition and assignment of rights, music or audiovisual production contracts, publishing contracts, adaptation contracts, co-production contracts.

We obtain the cessation of infringements of your creations and your rights (counterfeiting, poor performance of contracts, infringement of the integrity of the work or respect for the name).

In the event of litigation, our firm represents you as plaintiff or defendant, whether in infringement actions or actions relating to the performance of a contract. We define the strategy, the arguments to be developed on the merits and in the proceedings, and determine the amount of the loss suffered.

We have expertise in unfair competition and parasitism, legal issues often linked to intellectual property law today.

Our firm has already been involved in litigation concerning :

– counterfeit works of art: demonstrating originality and ownership of rights over them

– counterfeiting of luxury products and designs for which we have won our case
