Once again ZBM has been featured in the 2017 edition of the IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners, the Intellectual Asset Management magazine has listed ZBM as “highly recommended” in the category for patent prosecution in Spain.

According to IAM ZBM “is an extremely impressive firm with some fantastic people and the biotechnology team there is unquestionably one of the best in Spain”. The ability of the team to understand how to effectively communicate arcane legal concepts to laypeople is also highlighted.

The IAM also gives individual recognition to the outstanding work of Bernabé Zea, in lawsuits involving big pharmaceutical companies, as well as to Carles Comes, dealing with Electronics, telecommunications and software issues.

Mathieu de rooij also stood out due to his remarkable work as a practitioner, especially dealing with complex patent prosecution. Anna Barlocci is further mentioned for doing “fantastic things for intellectual property in Spain, having helped a new generation of attorneys to become qualified European attorneys and educated companies on the importance of their IP rights”, as well as for being one of the only patent professionals in the country to be regularly asked by the commercial courts to act as an independent expert.
