A destination practice for intellectual property law, Brigard Castro impresses with its ‘extensive knowledge of IP issues, which goes far beyond what firms in Colombia traditionally handle’. The boutique additionally brings to bear an 80-year history of specialising in the area, as well an ability to plug into the full-service expertise of associated law firm, Brigard Urrutia. High-profile managing partner Juan Pablo Cadena possesses ‘great knowledge in the area of intellectual property’, with his comprehensive skill set spanning  copyright, IP litigation, and trade names, among other market segments.
