Müller Mazzonetto “does outstanding work – the professional and clear way in which it leads clients through the whole patenting process leaves them with zero complaints. It respects deadlines, is very responsive and is transparent and fair on costs”. A formidable opponent in patent litigation – especially in the pharmaceutical space – it also adroitly handles prosecution and transactional instructions, ensuring that clients benefit from total support. Figureheads Nathalia Mazzonetto and Karina Haidar Müller are two highly accomplished lawyers with a glittering clientele to match. Mazzonetto is a fierce courtroom advocate, but never just fights for the sake of it: she also has a knack for securing optimal outcomes through arbitration and mediation. A busy licensing practice is a further string to her bow. Müller is likewise a seasoned negotiator of transformative patent transactions and was recently elected as the president of the Licensing Executives Society International’s Brazilian chapter; her commercially attuned counsel is always in hot demand. On the prosecution side, Alexandre Fukuda Yamashita is a first-class mechanical engineer whose thoroughness leaves no room for slip-ups when drafting and filing patents and industrial designs.
