“The profession is changing,” observes Ingrid Corviole-Parent, Senior Counsel at De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés. “Traditionally, attorneys were involved in trademark filings. Today, their role goes far beyond that. They must be able to manage a portfolio in a strategic and economic manner, but also accompany the client in his projects and contribute, together with a legal advice, to his successful representation. I am pleased to join De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés, which is a forerunner in its perception of this major evolution and of the added value that intellectual property attorneys can bring”.
“We are delighted to welcome Ingrid Corviole-Parent,” commented Louis de Gaulle and Henri-Nicolas Fleurance, respectively Chairman and Managing Director of De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés. “At a time when trademark protection is increasingly strategic for companies and complex in a global economy, her expertise is a real asset for the firm and the services we offer to our clients.
