Pierre Véron is the honorary president of the European Patent Lawyers Association (EPLAW), which he founded in 2001 and of the French association of patent litigators. He has taught European patent litigation at the International Centre of Industrial Property Studies (CEIPI) in Strasbourg. Between 2007 and 2012 he served as an expert with the European Commission for the creation of the Unified Patent Court in Europe. He is a member of the drafting committee of the Rules of Procedure of this court. Pierre Véron is the editor of Saisie-Contrefaçon, published by leading French publisher Dalloz (third edition, 2012), and of Concise International and European Intellectual Property Law, published by Kluwer Law International (second edition, 2011). He is also the author of more than 50 other publications on patent litigation.

He has presented numerous reports on behalf of the AIPPI French group and has also acted as officer of various international AIPPI committees.

A former president of the arbitration centre of Lyon and a former associate of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, he has been involved in several arbitration proceedings, either as counsel, arbitrator or chairman of the arbitration panel.

Véron & Associés maintains a statistical study on patent litigation in France. The latest report concerns the decade 2000-2009, which is a follow-up to a previous study spanning 1990-1999. Both can be found on the firm's website.
