Lloreda Camacho has perfected the art of managing, developing and optimising patent portfolios on a regional basis in Latin America and the Caribbean. This is hugely appreciated by prestigious international patrons such as Gilead Sciences, for whom the team – drawing on its expert knowledge of patent legislation and policy in 18 jurisdictions – manages around 1000 patent applications. For this key client – one of many who seek out its exacting services – 2020 was a vintage year successfully obtaining critical patent protection for blockbuster HIV and HCV drugs in Colombia and elsewhere. Taking the lead for Gilead and others are head of the patent and life sciences department Ana Maria Castro and technical director Nestor Bejarano Pérez, who both bring special qualities to the practice. Castro blends prosecution and litigation expertise and has an exceptional command of life sciences industry issues. Pérez knows how to press his case effectively at patent offices across the region. Putting some focus on the litigation offering, Lloreda Camacho has an enviable hit rate obtaining preliminary injunctions and doing so timeously.
