LAVOIX WINS TROPHÉES DU DROIT GOLD AWARD
Les Trophées du Droit, the annual Law Awards organised by the magazine Décideurs Stratégie Finance Droit since 2001, recognise the best legal teams in 26 categories. LAVOIX, the leading cross-industry player dedicated entirely to Intellectual Property in France, has just won the Gold Award in the “Industrial Property Advisory: Patents” category at the 2014 awards ceremony.
A jury of experts, made up of more than 130 renowned professionals in the French legal sector, met yesterday evening to reward the winners from the 150 law firms and lawyers in the running for the Gold Award in their category.
After an initial selection from the applications in September, the nominated law firms were invited to present their applications in front of a jury made up of General Counsels and CFOs of major companies and corporate and investment fund bankers. This “oral exam” gave them the opportunity to highlight the strong points setting them apart from other firms and, more importantly, to communicate interactively with the members of the jury.
LAVOIX presented various cases dealt with between 2012 and 2014 involving the filing and valuation of patent portfolios as well as litigation proceedings and negotiations when required. The jury was particularly impressed by the sheer diversity of the types of cases handled in a wide range of sectors and industries.
