Panama’s largest outfit Icaza González-Ruiz & Alemán is steeped in historical significance and home to a modern, thriving trademark practice. With many prestigious lawyers on its roster, it is widely respected in the IP community and sets the standard for excellence with many of its team being active participants in organisations such as INTA, the Inter-American Association of Intellectual Property and the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property. Taking command of the elite ensemble is partner Gabriela Tejada de Britton, highly valued for her “knowledge, fast turnaround times, pragmatic perspective, and ability to present complex legal issues in business terms.” De Britton has done much to shape the development of IP law in Panama and is a trusted thought leader. Counterpart Mariela de la Guardia Oteiza is also making a strong contribution to the advancement of Intellectual Property and is best known for providing sterling legal advice to multinationals that are expanding into Panama. Excelling on the contentious side are Fernando González-Ruiz¸ recently demonstrating his enforcement talent through conducting successful raids for luxury brands including Rolex and Bulgari, and litigation expert Moisés Iván Rivera, who is a well-established strategist in complex oppositions.
