Our team is recognized amongst the world’s premier patent professionals by IAM Patent 1000

We are delighted to share that team members of our patent department have been recognized by the IAM Patent 1000 research as some of the world's best pratictioners in the field.

The research process for the ranking takes several months of evaluation, reference checking and indications, so we are very pleased to be in the final list.

This is what the editorial team commented on the work of our firm and partners Ana Paula Jardim, Gustavo Leonardos, Luiz Leonardos and Renata Campello:

"Luiz Leonardos & Advogados is home to some of the country’s most prolific patent practitioners – including two-term president of the ABPI Gustavo Starling Leonardos and former executive president of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property and 60-year veteran in the field Luiz Leonardos. Managing partner Gustavo is a licensing sage and seasoned negotiator of technology transfer agreements. An accomplished litigator and polyglot, the more senior Leonardos remains a pillar of the patent market. Overseeing the technical arm, Ana Paula Jardim is a prosecution dynamo. An electrical engineer by training, she is au fait with many technical disciplines and plies a fine trade on behalf of giants in the pharmaceuticals, telecoms and energy sectors. Together, Jardim and Renata Campello Afonso find the most efficient route to protection. [...] Working shoulder to shoulder, the pair’s 100% success rate through this pilot speaks volumes for their aptitude for prosecution; US peers attest to their skill."
