Prestigious pharmaceutical, biotechnology and other clients look to SÉRVULO to implement smart patent protection programmes and evaluate product launch risk, but also gravitate towards it when the patent litigation threat level rises: its blend of legal, regulatory and advocacy skills inspires total confidence. The firm is also enviably well connected among high-ranking foreign associates, which further reflects its status as an unerringly reliable service provider. Head of the practice Ana Rita Painho has spent two decades teasing out the knots of cutting-edge, often multi-jurisdictional IP matters for the likes of Teva, among others. She draws invaluable support from Mariana Costa Pinto, a senior associate who is taking on increasing responsibilities in all areas of IP practice.
