Colombia > Intellectual property

Holland & Knight finds favour with sources for its ‘personalised, prompt and useful advice‘. The group is distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach to the area, which sees it provide integrated support on IP together with competition, consumer protection and data protection law. Department head Danilo Romero Raad is a regulatory specialist, whose practice spans IP, competition, consumer protection and TMT-related matters. Recommended names at associate level include Camila López, who has a broad regulatory focus; and Maria José Pardo, who joined in August 2021 from Brigard Castro. Associate Bettina Sojo, currently on study leave in New York, is also noted. Since publication, the team has been notably strengthened with the October-2022 hire of former director of the National Directorate of Copyright in Colombia, Camila Santamaría, as senior counse; with approaching 20 years’ experience, she has held leadership roles at both ASIPI and INTA – in the latter case serving on the organisation’s Latin America Global Advisory Council.
