According to satisfied clients, BBGS Abogados provides ‘peace of mind that everything will be managed properly‘.

Associate director Lorenzo Pizarro receives fulsome praise from sources for his focus on maintaining ‘direct, sincere and friendly contact with the client‘; he has a broad dispute resolution practice that spans judicial and arbitral procedures. Associate Pablo Arboleda left in April 2022 to join IP firm OlarteMoure.

BBGS Abogados‘ IP practice ‘provides a completely personalised service to the needs of each client‘, say sources. The full-service department combines standalone offerings in industrial property as well as advertising, entertainment and audio-visual production, which ensures that it packs a punch in entertainment-related matters. Indeed, one client attests, ‘I don’t know of another law firm that is as informed about production and television’. Key names include Felipe Rubio, who specialises in copyright and trade mark rights; and Myriam Montenegro, who is highly regarded for her expertise in audio-visual production, cinematography, television and commercial law. The group also benefits from the experience of dispute resolution head Lorenzo Pizarro. Associate Diana Vigoya left the firm in March 2022.
