What the team is known for

International IP practice that advises on all aspects of patent and trade mark law on a pan-European scale. Receives patent litigation instructions from major international clients in technology-heavy sectors, including pharmaceuticals and electronics. Also possesses a Madrid-based brand protection and prosecution practice that regularly acts for global brands on trade mark filing and enforcement matters. Copyright lawyers assist with challenges to the interpretation of legislation affecting Spain's collecting societies, with further standout experience in high-profile proceedings seeking to prevent piracy of media content.

Strengths

Interviewees note that the lawyers' willingness to invest time in understanding the technical aspects of patent cases feeds through into their advocacy skills, saying: "They understand the technology to a level where they are able to cross-examine an expert and make an argument."

"They are able to carry out proceedings that are highly demanding and require a high level of specialisation," reports another source.
