“ArtLaw was founded by Josée-Anne Bénazéraf and Laurent Merlet, who ‘have a perfect understanding of the publishing world´ and whom clients ‘trust blindly when it comes to making strategic choices’, as well as Anne Boissard; together the group impresses with ‘finesse and intelligent advice’ and ‘precious expertise in defamation claims and press law’. Recent work highlights include defending a major international book publisher against unfair competition and parasitism claims brought by a competitor, acting for a film producer and distributor in copyright infringement proceedings initiated by a French journalist in connection with a sports documentary, and defending a household publishing name against a photography agency seeking to repossess part of the client’s historic photographic archive.
