Our Paris office is expanding!

27 April 2022

We are delighted to welcome Yannick Biron, a highly experienced French and European patent attorney, as a partner in our Paris office. Yannick will be working alongside partner Russell Edson, who relocated from London to Paris in 2019 and is a qualified British, French and European patent attorney.

As a team, both Yannick and Russell have exceptional expertise in advising businesses of all sizes about how to protect and enforce their IP rights in a variety of industry sectors. Their experience spans high-value manufacturers in the automotive, aerospace and defence industries, thriving SMEs in other advanced engineering industries, as well as fast-growing tech-led companies in diverse fields such as bioscience, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

Growth in Europe is a key part of our strategy along with growing our traditional UK base; establishing Withers & Rogers as the European IP firm of choice for our clients in the coming years. Europe not only creates new opportunities for growth but allows us to continue to seamlessly provide the full range of services to our clients before the EUIPO as we do currently.

We are looking forward to introducing Withers & Rogers’ strong customer service-led culture and proposition to more businesses that might be seeking IP protection for their innovations in France and around the world.
