Within: Intellectual property

The client consensus is that few firms can match Marval, O'Farrell & Mairal’s ‘long experience in the area’ or its ‘deep bench of professional partners’. The sizable eight-partner team covers all the bases in IP law and is able to draw upon specialist skill sets in patents, trade marks and IP litigation; overall the department is roundly praised for its ‘proactive ability to find solutions’ and its ‘very practical and business-oriented approach’. Among its recent trade mark cases, the ‘very strongIris Quadrio successfully represented Procter & Gamble in an opposition action brought by Chinfield. Elsewhere, senior figure Sergio Ellmann successfully represented Ford in overcoming the Argentine Trademark Office’s objections to the registration of the "Ford Bronco" trade mark. On the patent side, Martín Bensadon is widely revered as a ‘leading expert’ and led many of the department’s recent high-stakes patent litigation cases. Of counsel Iván Poli and Ignacio Sánchez Echagüe are also noted for patent matters, while Gustavo Giay and Martin Chajchir are key names for IP litigation.
