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.
