The impact of inventions, trademarks, and internet sites is international.
At Santarelli English is as much our working language as French.

Given that the protection of patents is governed by international treaties, that European protection of trademarks is administered in Alicante, and that patent litigation will be settled before a unified court, our work at Santarelli is necessarily international in scope.

Strengthened by an international referral network of experienced and established lawyers, Santarelli supports its clients around the world. Santarelli is able to rely on highly qualified professionals across five continents, allowing it to ensure clients seamless service.

Not bound by any exclusivity agreements, Santarelli can freely choose the IP law firm best adapted to its client’s specific needs, regardless of the country.

Santarelli’s international capabilities allow it to act as a gateway to Europe for its international clients.
