Intellectual property specialist LAVOIX opens an office in LausanneMonday 28 February 2022
LAVOIX, a major player in the Intellectual Property (IP) sector, continues its international development and has opened its first Swiss office in Lausanne.
Since 1898, LAVOIX has been assisting companies, no matter their economic or technical sector, in the protection, defence and valorization of their Intellectual Property rights.
The firm’s new office was opened on 17 January 2022 in Lausanne (canton of Vaud), and is headed by Maxim Kuzmin, Partner, who has been working with LAVOIX on patent matters for nearly 10 years after several years of experience in the R&D field, in a multinational company specialized in gases, technologies and services for the health industry as well as in a research center specialized in modeling and digital simulations.
According to the firm, Switzerland's innovation performance is one of the best in the world, thanks in particular to strong research institutions in both the public and private sectors and to an economy based on knowledge and the production of goods and services with high added value.
"Over the last thirty years, Switzerland has developed a secure and efficient environment for the management of intellectual property rights. LAVOIX already assists several clients who file their patents in Switzerland. This new office in Lausanne will allow us to strengthen our presence in Europe and internationally, thereby offering our other clients new opportunities to develop their IP strategy", explains Maxim Kuzmin.
This new office is the fifth in Europe for LAVOIX. With a presence stretching back more than 120 years in France and more than 10 years in Germany, with an office in Munich just a few meters from the headquarters of the EPO (European Patent Office), LAVOIX has also established itself in Italy in Milan, and in Luxembourg for the past four years, and boasts a network of correspondents established in 170 countries.
