Santarelli has one of the busiest trade mark prosecution practices in the French IP market. Practice leader Eric Le Bihan and his “very professional, efficient” team of trade mark attorneys have recently attracted new portfolios to the firm. One client is impressed by Le Bihan’s “strong analysis and knowledge of legal matters”, adding that his advice is “always accurate and relevant”. The attorneys also get involved in contentious trade mark-related matters. Richard Combes and Séverine Bruco are two notable practitioners. Mama Shelter, Accor Hotels and Papier d’Arménie are among the firm’s trade mark clients.
