Antonio Tavira has been appointed President of ELZABURU, a position that he will hold in addition to that of Managing Partner, which he has held since 2009. The position became vacant following the passing of Alberto Elzaburu in April of this year.
He has degrees in Law (Comillas University) and Business Studies (ICADE, Madrid), as well as a Master’s degree in Business Administration (IESE Business School, University of Navarra), and also holds positions in institutions and associations in the legal and IP fields, such as ASIPI, ECTA and AIPPI.
Antonio Tavira knows ELZABURU very well. He began working at the firm in 1998, and has forged a brilliant professional career, leading the transformation from a family firm with over 150 years of history to a modern firm specializing in IP and IT law. “ELZABURU has evolved from a family firm structure to a partnership model, and this transformation was supported and driven at all times by our dear Alberto de Elzaburu, an extremely important figure in the history of industrial property in Spain and worldwide”.
The firm, which was established in 1865, has renewed its corporate image this year, adopting a new corporate identity that reflects its commitment to adapt to the new demands of a marketplace that is subject to constant technological and social change. “We have successfully transformed from the traditional image of a trademark and patent agency, expanding our services to a diverse range of fields, such as artificial intelligence, data protection and trade secrets, anti-counterfeiting, valuation of intangible assets, and management of audiovisual projects, while also implementing new technological tools”.
