Copyrights / Intellectual property

Granrut Avocats has developed specific recognised competence in copyright and intellectual-property law.

The ten lawyers in the IP/IT department are knowledgeable about this demanding legal area and offer pragmatic solutions to make intellectual works secure and enhance their value.

They continually adapt to the changes in practices and technologies, as well as to the far-reaching changes to copyright in the digital age.

They assist both the creators and users of rights, whether individuals, SMEs or large French and international groups.

The team has been recognised every year by Legal 500 Europe (Category 1) and by the magazine Décideurs ("Essential" and "Excellent", gold and silver trophies).
