We assist and represent our lawyers in litigation related to patents or more generally to technological innovations (patent infringement, action to establish the ownership of patents, litigation related to inventions by employees, breach of non-disclosure or know-how exploitation agreements, the fight against patent trolls, actions related to FRAND patents, etc.) in France and abroad (with the assistance of correspondent lawyers abroad, specialised in industrial property), before all domestic jurisdictions. We work together with our partner patent attorney firms (CPI) on the filing and management of patent portfolios and for technical assistance in patent litigation.
Cornet Vincent Ségurel also assists its clients in the drafting and revision of contractual agreements and projects related to patents or unpatented innovative technologies (expertise/know-how/trade secrets), for example, research and development agreements, cooperation agreements, research, patent co-ownership, licence or transfer consortia, consortia concerning the taking of sureties on patents (for example, pledges), and more generally all types of technology transfer, management or valorisation agreements.
We assist our clients in developing, exploiting and securing innovative and developmental projects, in relation to companies or territories, in particular those concerning the adoption of disruptive innovations, innovative solutions or technologies (e.g., factories of the future).
More generally, we advise and assist our clients on the implementation of a coherent policy to protect intangible assets, including their inventions.
