Intellectual property Tier 4

IP boutique Luiz Leonardos & Advogados has longstanding experience in strategic matters concerning trade marks, patents, industrial designs, copyrights and domain names. IP litigation, anti-piracy measures and unfair competition issues are also among the practice's regular instructions. The team is under the leadership of three partners: Ana Paula Jardim oversees the patents group; Rodrigo Bonan leads on litigation; and Patricia Lusoli is in charge of trade marks. Luiz Leonardos and Gustavo Starling Leonardos are adept at advising on all areas of IP. Pedro Zardo, who specialises in judicial and administrative litigation, joined the recently opened São Paulo office in September 2019.


‘We would like to highlight the exceptional dedication and commitment that the firm has to their clients and how well prepared their members are to deal with their clients’ needs. The patent practice is outstanding and always provides us with solutions and high standards.’

‘Responsive and helpful.’

‘Ana Paula is an expert in the IP field, particularly in patents. She is always available and committed to seek the best interest of clients. She is a very technical person, providing solutions for any Novelty or Inventive Steps requirements.’

‘Ana Paula Jardim is always a pleasure to work with. She is very knowledgeable and helpful, and is well-known in the international patent circuit.’

Luiz Leonardos E Advogados mixes the expertise and resourcefulness of over 100 years of work devoted to intellectual property in Brazil with the advantages of a newly created framework, one that is more effective and personal in the interaction with clients. The firm was created as a direct result of the split of Momsen Leonardos & Cia. on April 30, 2012. Luiz Leonardos E Advogados has 14 partners and over 60 experienced professionals dedicated to all areas relating to IP.

The experience acquired by the senior partners, with over 50 years of distinguished practice in IP, enabled the creation of a highly specialised team of attorneys, engineers, biologists and industrial property agents. Luiz Leonardos E Advogados provides all the assistance necessary to obtain, maintain and protect intellectual property rights in the administrative sphere and before the Brazilian courts.
