Alexandra Carrel has developed unique legal expertise in technology transfer and in the protection and development of innovative products (drugs, medical devices, digital platforms and artificial intelligence, technological innovations in chemistry of materials, cosmetics, green energy).
Her skills in French and Swiss law, as well as her knowledge of American law, enable her to work alongside her clients in complex international operations and strategic alliances, both in industrial property transactions and private equity. She is thus able to assist them from the creation of their innovations to the distribution or sale of their technologies or the company itself.
