Since it was established in Rennes in 1980, the Regimbeau firm has made its mark as a major economic and innovative force in the western region of France. It is now forming a dedicated legal department, testament to the extent of its growth over the intervening period.

Caroline Huguet, aged 27, an Intellectual Property lawyer, will handle matters relating to trademark and design law, domain names and copyright, as well as monitoring developments in competition law.

Caroline has a master’s degree in law, a post-graduate diploma (DESS) in business law, specialising in the law of Information and Communication Techniques.

Caroline will have the support of the infrastructure and resources of Regimbeau’s Legal Department in Paris.

Jean-Yves Branger, the head of the Rennes office, commented: “Regimbeau Ouest is taking a significant step forward. We take great pride in assisting businesses and public bodies in what is one of the most attractive regions of France from the point of view of innovation. Our policy of providing a local service and our representation at all levels of innovation and its exploitation enables us to offer a consistent approach to intellectual property advice, both as regards the technical/legal aspects with patents and their origins with trademarks.”
