Trained by Georges Kiejman and Thierry Marembert in criminal law, press law and copyright law, Virginie Tesniere has consolidated her skills in media law after twelve years of legal practice at Bauer Bigot & Associés, including five years as a partner, defending the main French press groups and publishers.

Virginie Tesniere is used to working in the courts and regularly practices press law litigation (particularly defamation and insult). After 20 years of experience, she has acquired the conviction that a case is won through a mastery of the subtleties of the procedure, a meticulous knowledge of the facts and a total investment in her cases.

Her cross-disciplinary expertise in digital and new media law also enables her to assist clients with regard to the specific and innovative legal framework specific to new communication media, whether to ensure that their rights and reputation are respected (removal of illegal content from platforms, social networks, etc.) or to develop their business (advice, contracts).

Virginie Tesniere also practices in criminal law and trademark law.

She also puts her skills in intellectual property at the service of artistic creation and authors by assisting them in their negotiations with publishers, producers and co-authors, and by representing them in litigation concerning infringement, parasitism and anti-competitive practices.

Her clientele is mainly composed of legal entities and individuals involved in the media, as well as audiovisual producers (in particular native podcasts), publishers, authors (writers, scriptwriters, directors) and journalists, whom she advises on freedom of expression and intellectual property issues.
