Miguel SaguierFerrere

Ferrere‘s dispute resolution practice is focused on complex commercial litigation and is frequently instructed by multinationals, who benefit from the firm’s presence in various jurisdictions across the continent, providing consistency in representation. Disputes over distribution contracts are a strength of the team and were a feature of its workload in 2020, which included a case for AstraZeneca where the team has filed an unconstitutionality plea before the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice. This was led by Néstor Loizaga with support from senior associate Miguel Saguier; together they coordinate the practice.

Paraguay > Intellectual property

As with many of its practices, Ferrere‘s intellectual property and regulatory affairs department has a strong focus on international clients, in addition to advising domestic companies from key industries such as agribusiness. Contentious matters are the team’s standout strength, with 2020’s highlights including a number of high-profile trade mark nullity actions. These were led by practice co-head Néstor Loizaga, whose presence in the team offers strong coordination with the corporate law and dispute resolution departments. ‘One of the most prepared lawyers in this area in the local market‘, senior associate Montserrat Puente is a highly regarded IP expert and the central day-to-day contact, co-leading with Loizaga. Fellow senior associate Miguel Saguier is also a name to note, with strength in IP disputes.
