In 2003, I left the field of Neuronal Researches and I joined the Intellectual Property Law Firm of my father. 
I then acquired skills in multiples fields and I progressively obtained the other diplomas  necessary for our profession :
    • CEIPI (Centre d’Etudes Internationales de la Propriété Intellectuelle, Université de Strasbourg). 
In 2019, I bought Cabinet Yves DEBAY and founded « DEBAY IP » (S.A.S), of which I am the CEO. 
I also intervene in various types of legal matters, including contracts and agreements or litigation, in France or in Europe, in particular for opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office (EPO). We can also manage such cases worldwide, with the help of our foreign colleagues.
As the whole staff of DEBAY IP, my scientific skills are multi-disciplinary, which make the strength of our teams to better assist you, whatever your domain of activity.
As all the attorneys of DEBAY IP, my areas of legal expertise are multiple, which allows us to support you whatever your needs.
We take care of the management of your files, whatever the country, and we advise you for preserving your rights.
