Though it began life as a firm of patent attorneys, LAVOIX has expanded in recent years to include a contingent of attorneys-at-law, strengthening and diversifying its already strong offering and providing a one-size-fits-all service for its illustrious clientele. Working out of four offices across Europe, it can tend to issues continent-wide. Gérard Myon, Bertrand Domenego, and Stéphanie Michiels each impress before the EPO – Myon brings a look behind the curtain from time spent as a patent examiner and also runs the Lyon office, while Domenego passes on his knowledge by teaching at CEIPI. Chemical engineer Michiels is qualified as both a French and European patent attorney and a UK patent attorney, and brings in-house experience from her time at a global pharmaceutical company. CEO Philippe Blot oversees the operation – infringement suits and seizure proceedings both fall within his remit as one of the first people to be accredited as a patent attorney litigator.
