          Florence Karila

          Partner

          Florence is a commercial litigation specialist, having been granted specialism certificates in IP law and NICT by the French National Bar Council (Conseil National des Barreaux). She has also developed expertise in the fields of real estate and construction litigation.

          Florence specialises in various commercial disputes disciplines, including IP, reputation protection, professional liability, real estate and construction cases. She advises a range of clients at various stages of their civil, administrative and/or criminal disputes.

          Florence is a highly experienced litigation lawyer, who only defends court cases or prevents court cases being raised. She also drafts settlement agreements and IP contracts.

          Her clients include start-up companies with IP issues (trademark oppositions, trademark disputes, copyright counterfeiting actions), listed or non-listed companies involved in construction disputes or more general main stream commercial disputes (agency agreements, libel and slander actions, contractual liability disputes, debt recovery in receivership/bankruptcy situations), professionals such as architects, factors managing co-owned properties (syndics de copropriété) and private individuals involved in real estate disputes. She defends their rights at all stages of civil, administrative and criminal proceedings before all competent French courts.

          Florence's areas of practice therefore mainly involve intellectual property law, construction law, real estate law, co-ownership law, professional liability (notably for accountants and auditors), contractual liability and more generally commercial law as a whole.
