WWL says

Joanne Quirin receives considerable commendation from sources. She provides counsel to clients on non-contentious industrial and intellectual property matters and frequently guides them through the full range of trademark matters.


Joanne Quirin has been a member of the Paris Bar since 2011.

She holds a postgraduate degree in intellectual property law from the University of Strasbourg’s Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI).

She joined Gilbey Legal in March 2012 and became a partner in 2016.

She previously worked as associate lawyer in a patent litigation boutique law firm.

Joanne focuses on soft IP non-contentious intellectual and industrial property matters dealing primarily with preliminary advice and clearance searches; filing and prosecution for trademarks and designs and domain names internationally; and the licensing aspects of IP matters. Her work covers all sectors, including pharmaceuticals, tobacco, alcoholic beverages, internet, household cleaning supplies, cosmetics and fashion. Her practice includes representing French and foreign clients before the EUIPO, the French IP and domain-name offices, and the EU Court of Justice.

Joanne works within a closely knit and dynamic team with three avocats, all members of the Paris Bar (Richard Gilbey, founding partner; Jehan-Philippe Jacquey, partner; and Arnaud Lellinger, associate), and an experienced and professional prosecution and paralegal staff headed by Cécile Chabane.

Joanne is a member of the International Trademark Association (INTA), Marques (the European Association representing the interests of brand owners) and the Association of Trade Mark and Design Law Practitioners (APRAM).

A French native speaker, she is also fluent in English and speaks some German.
