For multinational conglomerates seeking comprehensive protection and enforcement of their rights TIMES Attorneys is a go-to firm. A familiar presence before the Swiss Federal Patent Court, the outfit is extremely active in the pharmaceuticals space. The renowned and much-lauded Andrea Mondini is described as “hands-on, efficient and a pleasure to work with. A much-feared opponent, he is an excellent attorney who integrates technical issues into his arguments seamlessly. Truly a seasoned and mighty figure in the Swiss market.” In addition to protecting and enforcing clients’ rights in various litigation proceedings, Mondini is at the forefront of precedent-setting cases. Most notably, he was called on by DABUS to advise on a patent application involving an autonomously AI-generated invention. A first for Switzerland, the application seeks to list the AI as the sole inventor and the AI’s owner as the prospective proprietor of any issued patents.
