Market research unanimously confirms the strength of OlarteMoure’s legal and technical expertise, and as one source puts it: “OlarteMoure has the strongest technical team in Colombia.” The outfit’s leading prosecution work in the chemical and pharmaceutical space has been singled out, and its overall approach and sensitivity to client needs have also received praise. “The team is always available to solve all our questions and enquiries, in the nicest and gentlest way; there is always a kind face to help and provide easy, quick, complete and smart solutions. Even during the tough times in 2020 and 2021 they always found ways of capturing your attention and making IP issues easy to understand.” Department head and biomedical and mechanical engineer Carlos Olarte has long been recognised for his sterling service and deep technical expertise. Patrons remark on his “depth of experience in managing large patent portfolios and in litigation proceedings”. No doubt these attributes have greatly facilitated OlarteMoure’s “significant share of the local patent market and representation of all the important companies in Colombia”.
