International intellectual and industrial property law
Protection of intangible assets (mainly brands, patents, logos, industrial models and designs) is a major stake for businesses, as well on the national scale as on the international one. The taking into account of risks of counterfeits or conflicts related to the different international legislations, for example between Europe and the United States, require the advices and defense provided by an international lawyer.
Draï’s law firm is qualified to practice in France (Paris and Lyon’s bar) as well as in the United States (New York bar and Supreme Court). By relying on its solid experience, the firm intervenes regularly in complex cases regarding the protection of intellectual and industrial assets of small and medium businesses and industries.
Brand registration and patents in France and internationally
In order to protect a trademark at national, European or international level, it is necessary to register at the national institute of industrial property in France (INPI), as well as at the world intellectual property organization (WIPO) and at the African intellectual property organization (AIPO) or any other competent institution in the world depending on the company’s needs.
Draï’s law firm ensures a prior rights search of the brand as well as the application in order to have the best legal protection possible in accordance with legal constraints in each country or economical area. The issue of registration and validity of patents is central and complex, especially when it involves risks and legal disparities at the international scale. A law firm specialized in international law such as the one of Draï’s law firm will be a partner of choice, especially in cases involving parties in the United States. The firm has an important correspondents network and the capacity to appear in court in New York and in front of the Supreme Court of the United States.
Counterfeiting and unfair competition litigation
Counterfeiting cases and the non respect of intellectual and industrial property are even more complex when they involve a third party abroad. Since 17 years, Draï’s law firm accompanies businesses who suffered from unfair competition by implementing a solid strategy in order to obtain efficient legal remedies in France and internationally.
