The full-service IP team at AVA prides itself on its horizontal and collaborative style, in which lawyers and technical experts work in tandem to assist their clients. “It replies extremely quickly and displays a vast knowledge of intellectual property at every turn”, enthuses one source. The crew handles thousands of files, showcases exceptional skill at handling worldwide patent portfolios and maintains an ever-growing practice relating to plant breeders’ rights. Its commitment to innovation shines not only through its representation of world-class research institutions, but it also spearheads the efforts of the Mexican Institute for Science and Technology, a one-of-a-kind institution in Mexico whose sole purpose is to increase innovation. Robust leadership is supplied in abundance by Tomás Arankowsky, who supports companies in many meaningful ways, whether that be through asset procurement, enforcement or commercialisation. He regularly works alongside José Antonio Romero, who brings two decades of expertise to the table and deftly navigates the technical spectrum. Packing heaps of contentious firepower, Agustín Velázquez is appreciated for his strategic mind and pragmatic focus on commercially oriented solutions. In the words of one interviewee: “I have known and worked with Agustín for over 20 years and his judgement has never faltered; I trust his advice implicitly and highly recommend him to others.”
