Miguel GARRE MURCIA

PARIS

En résumé

Spanish and French attorney, called to the Paris, Granada and Malaga Bar Associations, holder of the French CAPA legal qualification, as well as the Spanish one, I began my experience as an attorney and legal expert in 1996. Over the course of my career I have been able to provide representation and defense for clients in everything from legal counsel to litigation.

(Avocat en France et en Espagne, mon expérience débute en 1996. Le Cabinet propose de solutions à des conflits de normes entre les deux pays, particulièrement dans les domaines des marques et de la responsabilité contractuelle (particulièrement des contrats d'ingénierie liés à la production d'énergie). Le Cabinet traite également les contentieux immobiliers dans un ou l'autre pays).

For three and a half years I was the head of the litigation department at the firm Balms Group International, made up of a yearly average of 50 attorneys and with a presence in 22 countries. The firm specializes in large real estate transactions (over 1 million Euros); moreover, I managed projects of all sizes in countries such as Cuba, Spain and Poland, specifically in the realm of international sales and international private law. Lastly, I defended the interests of and took on trade law litigation, agency and distribution contracts and economic criminal law for the Eastern Andalusia Official Association of Commercial Agents.

I have extensive experience in French business law. Recently, I had the opportunity to further develop my expertise in intellectual property and contract law within the legal team at ALSTOM Hydro France SA. Specifically, I was responsible for revising intellectual property clauses, validation of turnkey contracts, bid responses, drafting and negotiating contracts related to the concession of large hydraulic energy center engineering and construction projects, confidentiality contracts and consortium agreements and management of litigation processes.

Prior to that, I was the legal director at Chemicals, Minerals and Metals Co., a French-American multinational company dedicated to the production of thermodynamic energy, recycling of metals and secondary raw materials and international mineral trade, for over three years. During this period I was responsible for drafting and negotiating contracts with our clients and associates in Latin America, Morocco, Congo and Cameroon. Additionally, I was responsible for conflict resolution between the different branches of the Group and represented the interests of the Group companies in legal and administrative matters. I managed a cross-functional team of 17 professionals in the execution of projects in Guatemala, where the company had 22 zinc mines. The same type of projects had been entrusted to me previously in my post on the legal team at the French-Spanish company Alternative Metals SL.

I have been a member of the Malaga Bar Association since 2005, as well as one of the organizers of the “Art and Law” conference series with the Picasso Museums of Paris, Malaga and Barcelona and the Bar Associations of these three cities; Malaga (2009), Barcelona (2010) and Paris (11 June 2011); an event for New York is in the planning stages.

Over the last ten years I have worked as a legal expert and attorney for private and legal entities related to energy engineering, specifically in international contracts and intellectual property. Among my various tasks, I have dealt with protection measures for software copyrights, different methods of protection or types of deposit, name protection for industrial property rights and questions related to the patents on such inventions or their use. In an international context, I am familiar with USPTO procedures in the United States, and I developed legal solutions for clients in Japan interested in protecting their inventions in Europe.
