Christiane Féral-Schuhl and Bruno Grégoire Sainte Marie, both lawyers specializing in intellectual property, created in 1988 the firm FG Associés dedicated to the IT and technology law sector.
This firm quickly became a key player in new technology law.

The firm's expertise first developed on IT projects.
In the 1990s, multimedia shook up the major legal categories, particularly in the field of intellectual property. Many operators were born in both the telecommunications and media sectors. Convergence was underway and the internet revolution arrived.

In 1998, Christiane Féral-Schuhl and Bruno Grégoire Sainte Marie joined the international firm Salans with their team. The globalization of the economy and the internationalization of trade militated for this development. They, as co-managers of the "information and communication technologies" department, formed a team of specialists who have been able to multiply the distinctions.

In 2006, with their double experience, Christiane Féral-Schuhl and Bruno Grégoire Sainte Marie decided to create a new practice called "Feral-Schuhl / Sainte-Marie", and were followed in this project by their entire team . Feral-Schuhl / Sainte-Marie combines experience, dynamism and creativity, in order to offer a responsive and quality service, adapted to the new needs of their customers.
