WTR 1000 – De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés among the best law firms in Trademarks

Ranking – Trademarks

We are proud to be listed among the top law firms in the 2022 trademark ranking issued by World Trademark Review.


What they say about us :

The team at De Gaulle Fleurance are extremely pragmatic and business oriented. They understand how their clients’ businesses operate and provide precise and invaluable advice based on thorough research and a thoughtful review of the business and the competitive landscape. In addition, they have top-notch technical skills; and their litigation experience means that they always consider how a judge would likely rule.” Soft IP is a long-held specialism for the firm, which provides an A-to-Z trademark offering; while its full-service capabilities ensure that a multi-disciplinary approach is adopted on every case. Always looking towards the future, it recently developed its own litigation risk analysis tool – LitiMark – in collaboration with Case Law Analytics, which uses artificial intelligence to evaluate and predict court decisions. Covering the gamut of trademark services is Francine Le Péchon-Joubert, who makes her debut in the WTR 1000 this year. Recent credits include prosecution and enforcement work for Echosens in relation to its Fibroscan medical device, which involved defending its trademarks against a Chinese competitor; and an enforcement campaign and anti-cybersquatting initiative for Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer. Also appearing in the guide for the first time in 2022 is Serge Lederman, who has recently been representing Fédération Française de Tennis before the Paris Court of First Instance, obtaining a protective seizure of the opponent’s trademark in a potentially precedent-setting move. The hotshot pair join Julien Horn and namesake Louis de Gaulle in the rankings. Horn splits his time across trademark, patent and software work, and has recently seen to the prosecution needs of Epic Games and Colgate Palmolive; while razor-sharp strategist De Gaulle has been assisting Yetigel for about six years in its protracted battle with US company Yeti Coolers over use of the word ‘Yeti’”.


As individuals, Louis de Gaulle and Julien Horn, Partners, are again recognized this year. They are joined by Francine Le Péchon-Joubert and Serge Lederman, Partners, who make their debut in this ranking. Congratulations to them!
