« Founded in 2001, this forward-thinking commercial ensemble of 25 partners provides a diverse range of services to entities in the retail, media, real estate and toy sectors, among others.

Guidance on issues from filing to litigation is provided from a single unit – a commercially effective model that is still in its infancy in the French market. Louis De Gaulle “continues to do extremely well”, while Julien Horn’s forte is anti-counterfeiting and related online activities; both are recognised for advising leading brand owners. Frank Valentin “displays charm, flair and panache in his bedside manner, and his advice is of a lofty standard”. »
