Start-up Businesses

Industry Sector

Innovation can turn interesting ideas into viable and then successful companies and this is often seen as the catalyst that initiates the incorporation of new companies. However, companies may also fail if they stop innovating. Luxembourg is rapidly  emerging as a technological European Start-up hub. Attracting and nurturing start-up businesses from around the world, entrepreneurs may have many questions about Luxembourg local laws, business regulations and compliance.

For a company and for our clients, avoiding innovation faces an ongoing risk of becoming irrelevant. Therefore we help them to protect and secure their innovation and ownership via specific advisory assistance and via efficient litigation in relation to the defence of  their IP rights and  commercial relationships. 

Our dedicated legal hub, Wildgen 4 Innovation assists emerging businesses on:

  • Ideas protection,
  • Company implementation,
  • Seed investment,
  • Intellectual property,
  • Ownership of work produced,
  • Director’s duties,
  • Regulatory,
  • Labour law,
  • Tax considerations,
  • Litigation anticipation, and
  • Circular economy.

The WTR1000 recognised Emmanuelle Ragot as a leading and outstanding IP professionnal :

"Wildgen has a particularly excellent reputation in finance, tax and commercial law, but it also practices in intellectual property with finesse. Emmanuelle Ragot heads the data protection, IP, technology and media group and runs W4 Innovation – the firm’s unique legal hub for start-ups. Litigating is what she is best known for in IP circles, but she does sterling transactional work too. Leveraging an excellent network of contacts abroad she truly thinks internationally when it comes to devising IP strategies.”
