Agustín MayerFerrere

Ferrere‘s regional managing partner Agustín Mayer heads its IP practice, and lends his extensive experience in patent matters to a department that offers support on the full range of matters in the field. The client base has an international flavour typical of the firm, and its domestic offices in Montevideo, Tacuarembó, Colonia del Sacramento and free trade zone Aguanda Park, combined with its Bolivia and Paraguay branches, offer local contact to a wide variety of companies. Alejandro Alterwain is a leading IP litigator, and Martín Pesce is the name to note for privacy matters. Experienced senior associate Stella Weng also stands out, and is often the main contact for trade mark and patent registrations and administrative defence. Key associate Manuel Graña left the firm in August 2020 to work as a sole practitioner.
