With a commitment to innovation, and a turnover exceeding 3 billion Euros, the group employs over 8000 people across Europe, America and Asia.

The role

In a context of considerable growth and global strategy, we are looking to recruit an experienced US/UK qualified IP lawyer to be based in Paris or the company headquarters in Lille.
