Admitted to the Paris Bar in 1994, Sabine Agé gained experience in the various intellectual property fields (patents, trademarks, designs), before dedicating herself exclusively to patent litigation when she became a partner of Véron & Associés at the creation of the firm in 2001.

She is also active in cases relating to pharmaceuticals, chemicals and medical instruments, for international and domestic industry-based clients as well as research organisations. She deals with legal issues extending from contractual disputes, patent ownership (and co-ownership) to validity and infringement.
Sabine lectures on patent litigation at the International Centre of Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI) in Strasbourg and at the universities of Lyon and Montpellier, in addition to her speaking engagements for conferences.
