The firm strongly focuses on digital law and more specifically in the sectors of computer science, media, visual arts, design, audiovisual, cinema, music, photography and fashion.
The firm was founded by Anne-Katel Martineau in late 2007, under the trademark MEDIASTIC, drawing on partnerships with European and American law firms, especially in New York where she used to work and travels regularly.
