Pauline has considerable experience in handling national and cross-border IP disputes, notably patent litigations, particularly in the healthcare and telecommunications sectors. She has assisted clients in all types of patent proceedings, including preliminary injunctions, seizures (saisie-contrefaçon) and actions on the merits (validity and infringement) in different contexts (parallel litigation in the United States, pending oppositions before the European Patent Office). Pauline is a member of several associations: AIPPI (member of the steering committee of the French group, co-head of the patent and life science commission and co-head of the standing committee on patents and standards), EPLAW and LES.
