Benoliel Avocats is a « Boutique » specialised in the protection and defence of Intellectual Property rights.

We are a tight and very responsive team, 100% dedicated to IP and closely related issues, such as unfair competition, parasitism, free-riding and misleading, comparative or illegal advertising.

Expert in judicial and administrative proceedings in France, passionate about European IP law and European procedures, our team also believes in the vivacity and relevance of alternative settlement strategies, especially mediation.

We keep a close eye on current IP matters: influenced by economics, the impact of new technologies and European law, the law regarding Intellectual Property is constantly evolving.
