Europe's Leading Lawyers for Business 2013.
Band 1 of Leading Firms in Intellectual Property in Spain: "This niche IP firm continues to cover the full spectrum of related matters for many prominent clients, including the Colombian Coffee Federation and the High Council of the Chambers of Commerce, Industry and Navigation of Spain. In a recent highlight, the lawyers successfully represented the latter in a trade mark infringement case. Sources say: "Real experts in IP – the lawyers are also extraordinarily nice and it's a pleasure to work with them. One of their strengths is strategy, as they give you the bigger picture rather than focusing on the little details." Head of litigation Antonio Castán is a highly regarded market figure. "He's charming, with great expertise. He's highly solution-oriented and pragmatic," say interviewees. Clients describe Javier Fernández-Lasquetty as "versatile and practical. I can pick up the phone and ask a question and he always provides a viable solution: he gives real solutions to real problems," enthuses an interviewee. Litigation expert Enrique Armijo Chávarri is another well-respected member of the team. Doris Bandin is admired for her expertise in trade mark registration issues."
