Carla Castello

Founding Partner at Magellan IP

Carla Castello has over 20 years of professional experience in the field of intellectual property. Before co-founding Magellan IP, she was a partner at renowned Brazilian IP firms, as well as at one of the top 5 full practice firm where she was responsible for developing the firm’s industrial property practice. Ms Castello represents important national and international clients from a variety of industries, including consumer goods, internet and technology, insurance and financial services, and industrial and commercial products, from start-ups to large multinational corporations, in the areas of registrability consultancy, including searching and clearance for new marks, registration applications, general prosecution and trademark portfolio management.

In addition, Ms Castello provides advice on drafting and negotiating agreements and contracts involving IP assets, technology transfer and IP rights licensing, including copyright and industrial property. She also coordinates IP due diligence, and offers solutions and alternatives to identified contingencies and liabilities. Further, she routinely conducts training for her clients’ legal and marketing teams to deepen their knowledge and understanding of trademark protection and administrative procedures before the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office, and to educate creative teams in strengthening IP assets.

Ms Castello’s practice also covers judicial and non-judicial enforcement and defence, domestic and international trademark clearance and prosecution, and licensing arrangements.

She obtained an LLB from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro in 1991 and a post-graduate diploma in marketing from the same university in 1997.
