What the team is known for

A leading choice for patent law matters. Leverages the tremendous reputations of key partners in Barcelona to attract a client list that comprises many of the most important global pharmaceutical and biotechnology innovator companies. Has experience in telecoms sector patent cases. Handles civil or criminal trade mark infringement mandates for a wide client list that includes major companies in the food and drinks, tobacco or electronics industries. Has additional proven capabilities in the drafting and negotiation of software licence agreements that delineate ownership of IP rights in contracts between commercial partners.

Notable practitioners

Market commentators identify Isabel Carulla as a key figure handling patent litigation on behalf of the firm's pharmaceutical sector clients.

Josep Montefusco rises in the rankings, as he frequently acts for some of the firm's major technology or telecoms sector clients on trade mark and patent infringement cases. One client enthuses: "I think he has an extremely sharp mind and great experience." Interviewees note that Montefusco's economics background makes him a valuable resource for the quantification of damages in IP cases.

Miquel Montañá is recognised as a top choice for innovator pharmaceutical companies bringing patent infringement actions against generics companies. He also handles patent cases for companies in other technology-heavy sectors, and assists with trade mark disputes heard before Spanish courts or the  CJEU. "He knows the pharmaceutical environment very well," states one source, adding: "He is really innovative in his thinking in terms of how to approach cases." "He is diligent, proactive and is used to working on international matters; he is just fantastic," reports another interviewee.
