Gold - Agencies

Germain & Maureau is a premier IP agency which performs with equal dexterity on both the trademark and patent fronts. Despite the prevailing economic challenges, it has maintained a sky-high turnover and has thus been able to recruit 11 new staff and appoint three new partners over the past year, further strengthening its already potent offering. With its eyes continually trained on innovation, it has continued the development of both its online timestamping service (which works using blockchain technology) and online portal Episoft Web, which allows clients to keep track of all matters through a single platform. Putting the firm on the map are William Lobelson and Bertrand Geoffray. Qualified as a French, European and Swiss trademark attorney, Lobelson heads up the international department having spent 25 years working across France, the United Kingdom and Canada. “William gives clear and strong opinions rather than sticking to mixed options, as some often do. He is always available and has great trademark expertise at an international level.” Also both French and Swiss qualified, Geoffray has been on the scene for 22 years, eight of which he spent working in the legal department of INPI. A former president of the Association of Trademarks and a lecturer at the University Paris Dauphine and University Lumière Lyon 2, he has fully immersed himself in the French IP community.
