Bronze - Firms: litigation
While best known for its facility for FRAND-related disputes in the telecommunications sphere, Amar Goussu Staub’s remit is reassuringly broad, encompassing patent litigation and advisory work in almost every sector. Leading the charge is FRAND licensing ace Cyrille Amar, who co-founded the firm in 2017 and operates with poise on both sides of the contentious/non-contentious divide. His varied practice extends beyond patent law to include distribution and IT services disputes, unfair competition actions and international arbitration. Fellow all-rounder Jean-François Guillot can tease out the knots of complex IP disputes of all kinds, including infringement and interim injunction proceedings, as well as employee invention matters. He is equally persuasive at the deal table, brokering lucrative licence and technology transfer agreements and shepherding IP-rich M&A transactions to successful close.
