Since its founding in 1988, the VIDON Group has based its development on a set of strong values shared by the VIDON Group' partners and all its employees.
Closeness, professionalism, and international vision are the Group's three core values.
The VIDON Group is culturally committed to close contact with its Clients, always striving to build tailored, innovative services.
Throughout its expansion, the Group has taken the required measures to ensure that its experts are available and attentive to its Clients' requests.
Our staff members are always keen to build close ties with Clients and thus acquire the required knowledge of their specific environments. This enables them to put forward relevant proposals.
This closeness is also enhanced by rapid response, which drives each staff member to constantly adapt to the Client's changing needs, to offer them the solution most suited to their requirements in the shortest possible timeframe.
The VIDON Group strives to offer its Clients high quality and professionalism through high-value-added legal and technical services.
This value has earned the Group the trust of numerous Clients and a solid reputation in the field of intellectual property, something it is proud of.
Through the ongoing training of its teams and the wide scope of their exchanges on technical issues as well as legal matters, the VIDON Group can offer its Clients a constantly evolving range of high-level services.
The Group's European and Asian offices naturally give it broad international vision and great dynamism.
Within the Group, nearly 20 different nationalities and cultures work side-by-side on a daily basis, something which is very enriching and greatly enhances its capacity to listen.
The VIDON Group puts this wealth at its Clients' disposal by offering them services permeated with that vision, taking cultural gaps into consideration in an ever-expanding global economy.
With a current workforce of over one hundred people, the VIDON Group has turned a new page in its adventure, which it strives to write in the light of the values which its members of staff truly want to uphold and share: transparency & solidarity.
Word of the founding partner
A group serving its customers and the regions it works in
For 25 years, our Group has grown and contributed to the economic strength of our home territory: Western France and Europe.
We have managed to combine dynamism, strong growth, constant improvement of our consultants' skills and experience, responsiveness and focused adaptation to the demands and needs of innovative stakeholders.
We have tried to use our passion and our values to serve our customers and our profession.
We have also managed to grow in highly specific niche markets: technologies that are changing our world (telecommunications, health, the food industry, etc.), and rare legal expert assessments (knowledge protection, industrial property and competition law, patent pools, optimized strategic and fiscal management for international patent and trademark portfolios, pan-European legal strategies, support for initial stock market listings, etc.).
At the same time, we have invested strongly in Asia in the past 20 years. Initially dedicated to the fight against counterfeiting locally, progressively our teams in China and Thailand have greatly expanded their skills. Backed up by an in-depth understanding of the intellectual property landscape and stakeholders in the Far East, our
Group now provides services for setting up and providing support for win-win partnerships between these two regions of the world.
A global actor for global customers, we never forget the fertile land we came from and which nurtured us to become what we are today.
Our future lies in serving our home region and its development. This entails openness and adaptation to the needs of the world in the 21st century. This will come through partnership with the most dynamic – and neediest – regions of the world, in accordance with ethical and deontological values that uplift Humankind and human communities.
Presentation VIDON Group
Founded in 1988, the VIDON Group has always sought to make the difference by cultivating a cross-cutting, strategic approach to intellectual property consulting.
This distinctive feature is largely due to the atypical background and multidisciplinary leaning of its founder, Patrice VIDON, at the crossroads of the technical sector, law, strategy, economics and marketing.
Since its beginning, the VIDON Group has successfully pursued a controlled growth strategy, built on the originality and variety of its tailored services and the loyalty of its staff and clients.
The VIDON Group has also earned a reputation for being a "pro-active" player in the regional, French and international realms of Industrial Property.
The VIDON Group's development is based on a set of strong values shared by the Group's partners and all its employees.
The VIDON Group offers its clients international expertise through its offices in Europe and Asia (China and Thailand), and through its multidisciplinary, multicultural teams.
The VIDON Group has set up the required structure to meet its clients' needs at all stages in the development of their projects, in the fields of intellectual property (patents, trademarks, designs & models, copyright, Internet domain names, etc.) and related fields (unfair competition, right of publicity, etc.).
To ensure the quality of its services, the VIDON Group relies on the stability of its partners and workforce and their qualifications.
Its values enable the Group to maintain the trust of its Clients, convince and always offer a solution suited to its Clients' needs.
