A recent rebrand at Hoet & Partners reflects its forward-thinking, entrepreneurial approach to the practice of law. In line with this, it has also upgraded its technological systems to increase efficiency and enhance the client experience, and has invested further in its youthful multi-disciplinary team of professionals. Appreciative trademark owners receive exactly what they require in terms of brand strategies, which are configured to afford cast-iron protection while avoiding delays at the trademark office. Valued contacts for a host of foreign law firms and renowned corporate players, Patricia Hoet-Limbourg and Alicia Molero provide robust leadership to the team. Hoet-Limbourg is highly engaged in, and a widely respected member of, the international IP community. All categories of intellectual property fall within her wheelhouse, making her a versatile problem solver. Molero is the person to call for administrative proceedings. They regularly link up with Joaquín Núñez-Landáes, who brings a compelling blend of contentious and non-contentious patent and trademark skills to the table. Núñez-Landáes co-heads the litigation line-up alongside Ana Hernández, who boasts an impressive record of success. Taking on increasing levels of responsibility for key clients such as Novartis, Karen Incera has well-rounded prosecution and enforcement skills and is another name to keep on the radar.
