Quentin BRONCHART has a general education in physics and specialises in materials science. He acquired this specialisation during his thesis at the ONERA Microstructure Study Laboratory, where he worked on phase transitions in superalloys following a theoretical and numerical approach.

As a patent engineer, his broad scientific background has allowed him to understand a wide variety of advanced technical fields.

In microelectronics, Quentin’s work has focussed on technical fields ranging from the early stages of microelectronic component manufacturing, especially by molecular bonding, to the integration of these components in a manner related to thermal management issues, including resistive memory cells. In a previous job, he was in charge of LED-related applications, mainly for Asian industrial groups.

He also worked on smart cards, their manufacturing process and ways of improving their security for users.

He has a comprehensive understanding of the field of renewable energies, his expertise ranging from photovoltaic cell optimisation to eco-friendly infrastructure design, including renewable energy storage management.

In mechanics and electronics, he has worked especially on fluid distribution devices, particularly for large French manufacturers, fluid purification devices and non-destructive testing devices for research laboratories.

During his missions, Quentin has also developed technical skills in signal processing, image processing, cryptography, biometrics, lithography, 3D printing and plastics processing. From Wifi communication protocols, to image analysis modeling, to radiomics and the Internet of Things (IoT), Quentin has developed an expertise in digital and software protection.

With 12 years of professional experience in law firms, Quentin assists his clients in the definition of their IP strategy and handles the drafting of applications and their examination procedures in liaison with both corporate IP departments and lay inventors.

Quentin BRONCHART regularly participates in International conferences, in particular to meet and select foreign colleagues working for Hautier IP. He is a member of the Rhône-Alpes Group for the Protection of Intellectual Property (GRAPI).


Shortly after his doctorate, Quentin became a patent engineer at one large Parisian firm and then another, working on behalf of major companies.

Quentin Bronchart then moved to the Grenoble region and joined the Arjowiggins company to put his skills in the field to good use there. He then joined our team.

In 2016, Quentin became head of HAUTIER IP’s Grenoble office.
