World’s leading patent professionals
«Elzaburu is the oldest IP firm in Spain, with roots dating back to 1865. “It’s a classical IP firm with a long history, with many traditional IP experts – big and very versatile.” Elzaburu is indeed blessed with a wealth of talent across all patent areas and is one of the few firms in the country that have individuals on all three of the IAM Patent 1000 tables. Clients and competitors are especially complimentary about Elzaburu’s “strong” prosecution practice, led by redoubtable head of patents Francisco Sáez. A “great guy” as well as a standout drafter, prosecutor and defender of Spanish, Patent Cooperation Treaty and European patents, with a diploma in patent litigation in Europe, Sáez is well-prepared for the advent of the UPC. On the purely contentious side, there is also plenty that deserves mention. Head of litigation Antonio Castán is “well-known in the IP world” for his vast experience, which includes some truly landmark settlements and bewilderingly complex multi-jurisdictional firefights. Litigation partner Enrique Armijo Chávarri is an elite name in the world of SPC proceedings; this year, clients including GLAXO and other pharmaceutical players, have been queuing up for his expert advice. Renowned for his transactional support is Javier Fernández-Lasquetty, a former Baker McKenzie partner specialising in biotechnology, whose silky mediation skills are absolutely second to none.»
