Christophe  Besnard

Christophe Besnard has more than fifteen years of experience in both patent prosecution and litigation. His litigation background is highly valuable for helping companies to obtain patents that will withstand the scrutiny of European judges.

Being based in the Paris office, Mr. Besnard advises non-European companies in European proceedings. He also handles international patent portfolios for established French companies, while helping young innovative companies to define IP strategies aligned with their objectives.

As an engineer, he has a diverse technical knowledge in mechanics and electronics, including expertise in consumer electronics, automotive, aeronautical and aerospace industries, medical devices, microfluidics, alternative energy, packaging and childcare articles.
