The division of the former Benedetti & Benedetti saw the sizeable and highly-regarded IP team move, largely intact, to new boutique Estudio Benedetti. Ramón Benedetti heads a department that also includes Audrey Williams, Diana Leandro and Linette Torres, along with patent practice head Jeane Johnson. The 12-strong team demonstrates considerable strength across the entire array of contentious and non-contentious IP-related work, including anti-counterfeiting, annulment and infringement actions, and the registration and protection of trade marks, utility models, patents, industry designs and plant varieties. The practice also advises on regulatory health registrations, licensing and distribution agreements. Recent highlights include the filing and prosecution of 12 PCT applications for Universidad Tecnologica de Panama. The high-profile client base includes multinational heavyweights from sectors such as media, food and beverages, telecoms, pharmaceuticals, apparel and entertainment.

The IP practice at Alfaro, Ferrer & Ramírez stands out across the full array of sector-related work, including the registration, prosecution and enforcement of trade marks, copyrights, patents, utility models and designs, as well as advice on unfair competition matters related to advertising and product packaging. Marissa Lasso de la Vega, Rodrigo Moreno and Monique Ferrer form the core team.

With an interdisciplinary or cross-practice approach, Arias, Fábrega & Fábrega’s IP department frequently works in conjunction with the firm’s dispute resolution department. While senior associate Carol Durling takes the lead in non-contentious work, including trade mark registration and renewals, copyrights, obtaining of licenses and distribution agreements, Juan Corro handles litigious matters arising from counterfeiting and infringements.

Icaza, González-Ruiz & Alemán’s IP department handles both contentious and non-contentious sector-related work. Led by the highly-regarded Gabriela Tejada de Britton, the team advises domestic and foreign companies from a range of sectors (such as telecoms, food, transport, pharmaceuticals and banking) on trade marks, patents, utility models, copyrights and industrial designs. Hugo Morán heads the IP litigation practice and assists clients with the prosecution and defence of IP rights.

At Jimenez, Molino y Moreno - Abogados, Edwin Molino heads the IP department as a whole, and Cristina Molino heads the trade marks practice. Excelling in both contentious and non-contentious work, the team advises local and international clients on registrations, oppositions, and the prosecution and enforcement of IP rights, as well as anti-counterfeiting matters.

Morgan & Morgan’s IP practice is led by Enrique Jiménez and has a wealth of experience advising clients on the registration of trade marks, utility models, industrial designs and plant varieties. The team also handles litigious sector-related matters, such as oppositions, nullity and cancellation-claims and trade mark infringement. Banistmo, Louis Vuitton Malletier and Volkswagen are all on the firm’s client roster.
