Christophe Saam is a Swiss and European patent attorney. In 1998, he founded the intellectual property consulting firm, P&TS SA, of which he is president and CEO. The firm is based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, with offices in Zurich. P&TS grew quickly to become a market leader, meeting the needs of companies of all sizes from start-ups to large corporations, both in Switzerland and overseas.

After finishing his studies as an electrical engineer EPFL (Lausanne Swiss Federal Institute for Technology), Christophe was in charge of research in the field of holograms used in the manufacture of integrated circuits. In 1990, he became a search examiner at the European Patent Office in Berlin, where he learned both the patent law and online search techniques in the field of flat screens, error coding and data compression.

After returning to Switzerland in 1994, Christophe devoted himself to advising clients active in electronics, telecommunications, microtechnology and watchmaking regarding patent matters. Admitted as European patent attorney with the European Patent Office, he also studied American patent law in Washington and was awarded by a diploma of the University of Strasbourg in patent litigation.

In 2010, Christophe was appointed by the Swiss Federal Assembly as technical judge to the Federal Patent Court.
