We are proud to announce that Oscar Rubio, European Patent Attorney in the mechanical engineering area, has for the fourth consecutive year seen his work in ZBM recognized by being named a Rising Star in Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) list for 2022/23.

MIP Rising Stars list, which was launched in 2018, recognises some of the brightest, up-and-coming IP practitioners below partner level who have contributed notably to the success of their firms and clients over the last year. We are however equally happy to say that Oscar will not be eligible next year for this prestigious prize, he has proven to be such a great asset in the time he has been with us that this year we have been pleased to make him a ZBM partner. We look forward to seeing new MIP Rising Stars from ZBM next year to fill Oscar’s shoes.

In addition to this special honour ZBM has also yet again been awarded the prestigious title of Spanish Patent Prosecution Firm of the Year by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP), Anna Barlocci, Montserrat Jané and Bernabe Zea were also named as MIP Patent Stars of 2022. Last but not least, Montserrat Jané was included in the Top 250 Women in IP ranking for 2022.

Another excellent MIP year for the ZBM team, well done all.
