Covarrubias is a strong IP Santiago-based boutique with an active life sciences department. The legal team is frequently sought after by Chilean and international pharmaceutical laboratories, veterinary and food developers. The department is well equipped to deal with patent applications and portfolio management in this area, as well as regulatory mandates. Kaneko Seeds is a new client win.
"Covarrubias shows a very strong bench of lawyers who are highly responsive, and who show commitment to Diversity & Inclusion initiatives in Chile."
Covarrubias' life sciences department was instructed by Virbac to perform an FTO opinion regarding a drug which prevents parasitic infection in salmon, and to handle the contentious proceedings relating to the existence of competing patent filings by third parties in the Chilean market.
