Welcome to APRAM!
Founded in 1978, APRAM (Association of Trade Mark and Design Law Practitioners) is an international French-speaking association comprising leading trade mark and design practitioners. Its members include in-house lawyers, attorneys-at-law, as well as trade mark and design attorneys. This mixture of different horizons is the driving force of the association and embodies the underlying spirit ‘unis pour protéger l’unique’ (united to protect the unique).
Over the years APRAM has developed close ties with IP organizations including national, regional and international Intellectual Property Offices and other fellow professional bodies around the world.
APRAM not only plays a cornerstone role in representing the interests of IP practitioners and IP rights owners, the association also fulfils an educational and professional development function for members by means of workshops, seminars, discussion groups and conferences as well as through work group committees and by regular case law updates (Flash APRAM). The association also proactively supports the education of IP students by sponsoring a prize awarded annually to top flight IP students (APRAM Award).
APRAM is a unique forum for sharing experiences, knowledge, and ideas but above all is a friendly and welcoming association. Members regularly get the opportunity to attend events organized by its cultural committee (Cutlur’APRAM) amongst other social events organized by the association.
