Dear clients and colleagues,

We are proud and delighted to announce that, as of January 1st, 2019, our firm has taken over the activities of GEVERS SA, a Swiss subsidiary of the GEVERS Group. This takeover includes all GEVERS SA staff.

The GEVERS and BOVARD firms will thus merge to create a major player in the field of intellectual property consultancy in Switzerland, whether for patents, trademarks, design or copyrighting. Services will be provided to our Swiss and international clients under the name of BOVARD, a long-established symbol of high quality.

Besides its existing offices in Berne and Biel/Bienne, the BOVARD firm will thus reinforce its presence in French-speaking Switzerland with new offices in Neuchâtel so as to better serve its clients, in particular in the fields of watchmaking and microtechnology as well as the service industry.

The pooling of our skills will provide all BOVARD clients with optimal solutions and the most appropriate intellectual property strategy.
