Emna Khediri

Junior Lawyer | Operations Team

Emna Khediri joined the Wyss Center in January 2020 as a Junior Lawyer. She supports the Legal Department, especially on intellectual property matters.

Thanks to her background and her open-mindedness, she easily interacts with colleagues from different cultures and professional fields.

She decided to join the Wyss Center as she is interested in neurosciences and wants to ensure the protection of its legal interests and intellectual property rights.


Before joining the Wyss Center, Emna worked for the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Prior to that she spent three years at an international law firm in Geneva specialized in business law and intellectual property where she drafted contracts and agreements for entrepreneurs, startups but also mid-sized and large companies.

She gained experience in the Office of the Ombudsperson in an international organization, where she developed skills in Alternative Disputes Resolution.

She previously worked for two years in the Office of the Prosecutor, where she drafted final indictments, and specialized in financial criminal cases.

She holds two Masters in Business Law from the University Grenoble Alpes (France) and Savoie Mont-Blanc (Chambéry, France), and she recently obtained a Certificate of Intellectual Property delivered by the WIPO Academy.
