Bronze - Firms: litigation
Though best known for its work on high-profile and high-value patent litigation, Cousin & Associés is continuing to build its advisory and contract negotiation practice, to increasing success. The trio pushing the outfit into the future are Jean-Martin Chevalier, Myriam Moatty, and Sandrine Bouvier-Ravon. Having been a member of the Paris Bar for almost 25 years, Chevalier has been in more than his fair share of patent disputes and benefits from his fluency in German. Moatty, meanwhile, has been with the firm since 1996 and covers all IP rights, on both the contentious and non-contentious sides; Bouvier-Ravon has been a member of the Paris Bar since 1990 and is well known for her pan-continental and global strategies. “Sandrine is reliable and always reacts promptly. She provides very valuable input and always makes sure to properly understand all technical issues, so as to be able to accurately explain them to the judge.”
