The team is led by Delphine Brunet-Stoclet, a well-versed litigator who also advises on the development of clients’ trademark strategies, and Marie André-Nivet, who heads up the firm’s trade mark prosecution practice and manages worldwide IP portfolios. She also leads the firm’s Marseille office, which opened in January 2022.
