Prix Opéra 2013
Véron & Associés is rewarded by the jury of Prix Opéra for “Saisie-contrefaçon as a book, a film and a conference”
Prix Opéra is a joint initiative by Juristes associés and the agency Acteris with the aim to reward best practices in law firm communication created throughout the year.
In Paris, on Tuesday 3 June 2013, in front of an audience of more than 250 people assembled at the Maison du Barreau, the jury of Prix Opéra awarded their 3rd prize to Véron & Associés for “Saisie-contrefaçon as a book, a film and a conference”.
The jury justified its choice: “The law firm illustrates with pedagogy and in an entertaining way the saisie-contrefaçon across a book, a film and a conference.”
Véron & Associés (www.veron.com), leading patent litigation specialist firm in France entirely devoted to patent litigation, published at the end of 2012, the 3rd edition of Saisie-contrefaçon in the Dalloz Référence collection.
In addition, the law firm chose to illustrate the saisie-contrefaçon procedure through the production of a film created by the members of the law firm.
The saisie-contrefaçon is presented step by step: exchanges between the intellectual property right-holder and his legal counsel, drafting and submission of the saisie-contrefaçon request to the judge, conducting the saisie-contrefaçon on the premises of the firm accused of infringement, commencement of the proceedings on the merits of the case.
Finally, on 17 December 2013 at the Palais de la découverte in Paris, Véron & Associés organised a conference on the procedures comparable to the saisie-contrefaçon existing throughout major European countries
