  • Patents, trademarks, designs
  • Specific procedures before the EPO (opposition, appeal, limitation) and EUIPO (opposition, appeal, nullity)
  • Copyrights and related rights.
  • Software, database
  • Domain Names
  • Geographical indications
  • Unfair competition
  • Contracts (collaboration, assignement, license, technology transfer, consortium agreements, franchise)
  • Technology transfer (strategic and legal issues, due diligence, agreements)
  • Action for infringement and invalidity proceedings (in co-opeeration with attorneys-at-law)
  • Infringement Seizure, customs seizure.


However, our firm does not advise clients in the fields of tax law and software contracts.


IXAS Conseil is admitted to practice patent, trademark and design law in France (INPI), Germany (DPMA) and before the EPO and the EUIPO, according to the professional rules applicable to these offices.


For other jurisdictions IXAS Conseil can rely on its worldwide network of associates. If necessary (and in particular for court litigation), IXAS Conseil will cooperate with its own network of attorneys-at-law, or with the attorney-at-law selected by its client.
