Intellectual property

Within: Intellectual property

PLMJ is ‘very selective and focused on what really matters’. The team primarily handles copyright and trade mark issues, but has experience representing pharmaceutical-sector clients in patent arbitrations. Highlights included acting for Tiger Coatings in legal action seeking the annulment of the trade mark Aqualac, which in Portugal is owned by CIN, and assisting the Gulbenkian Foundation with copyright and image rights of a digital catalogue of all the foundation’s exhibitions. Manuel Lopes Rocha is very regarded. Ana Teresa Pulido and senior associate Paula Martinho da Silva are the other names to note.
