Bronze - Individuals: prosecution and strategy

Baker McKenzie’s Paris outpost is home to nine accomplished IP practitioners, each of whom is dedicated to “finding the most sustainable and effective solutions for clients”. “They are very good at adapting to industry sectors and getting to grips with the key issues facing clients. It is important to be able to provide targeted answers and advice, and Baker McKenzie always delivers.” With support from the firm’s sweeping international network, they provide both contentious and advisory support to a litany of household names, such as Moët-Hennessy, British American Tobacco and Unilever. Taking care of all three is Virginie Ulmann, who receives acclaim for her “adaptability, focus and wide trademark expertise”. Confident on both the contentious and non-contentious fronts, she also deals with patents, designs and unfair competition issues in her practice. Alongside Ulmann on the Unilever brief is Nathalie Marchand, who pulls out all the stops whether she is managing portfolios, fighting in civil and criminal court cases, or ironing out the complexities of IP-related M&A deals.
