Guerra IP is a market leader in Porto Alegre and maintains the largest IP practice in southern Brazil. However, it has an excellent national – and international – reputation, and is just as well resourced in Rio de Janeiro. The firm earns the enduring trust of its clientele by understanding their innovations, business and culture, and tailoring IP strategies accordingly. It deploys a technically accomplished team that completes assignments in satisfying fashion for reasonable fees; sources confirm that “it matches excellent quality with good prices”. Coming in for special praise are Alberto Guerra, an all-IP expert and head of patent litigation, and litigation chair Ricardo Pinho: “Alberto is a master of his craft and can be relied on completely. He is knowledgeable on all aspects of patent and trademark law, and is extremely responsive.” “Ricardo can explain the complexities of the Brazilian legal system in crystal-clear terms and gives pragmatic advice for overcoming any obstacles. He possesses strong technical skills along with deep practical experience and is a source of high-value counsel.” Another key figure is Flavio Leonardos, who leads the patent department. In 2022 he marks his 40th year handling patent and technology matters, meaning there is little he has not seen. He knows how to obtain strong patents and how to put them to good business use.
