Mario Soerensen Garcia is “an outstanding professional with superior knowledge of Brazilian trademark law, high-level litigation skills, business expertise and an enthusiastic personality”. He sets the ideal tone for a well-built team of lawyers who are in their prime. Take Paula Bezerra de Menezes, for example: she has market-leading knowledge of evidentiary issues in IP litigation and is well trained in alternative dispute resolution, making her an invaluable contact when infringement issues loom. As clients attest, she is also “excellent in trademark prosecution and counselling” and a “responsive, pragmatic and diligent lawyer” all round. So too Otávio Saraiva Padilha Velasco, a litigator and commercial IP lawyer with a fine-grained understanding of corporate, marketing and trademark law. He acts for prestigious companies – including a leading name in social media – which express great confidence in his abilities. The go-to for a global tech titan, Renata Carneiro is a sophisticated operator who is sensitive to the risk profiles of her clients; focused on transactions and litigation, she is increasingly engaged in border measures and international arbitration. Collectively, these lawyers “bring creative solutions to challenging brand matters and provide a flexible and high-quality service” that puts Soerensen Garcia in hot demand.
