Within: Intellectual property

Russin, Vecchi & Heredia Bonetti’s practice is praised for its ‘very good response times, knowledge and value for money’. Group head Rosa Campillo and senior associate Mónika Fiallo have ‘deep knowledge of local law and a good understanding of client needs, notably in the pharmaceuticals industry’; they defended Mead Johnson Nutrition in a case involving unauthorised image use, as well as advising GSK on an administrative appeal to the Ministry of Health regarding data protection and pharmaceutical-product commercialisation permits. Cortés Hermanos is a client on the copyright side; and Comercial N&J, Casa Paco and Apple recently instructed the team on trade mark matters. Other work saw Campillo and Fiallo advise Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health and Tetra Pak on IP regulatory matters.
