Alongside the continual recognition ZBM receives annually from the Managing Intellectual Property IPStars and the Intellectual Asset Management magazine (IAM) in the highest rankings for Spanish Patent Prosecution, and being named as one of Europe’s Leading patent law firms by The Financial Times in 2022, we are especially proud to have been also highlighted once again for our work by the IAM European Patent Office (EPO) Patent 1000 2022 rankings.

This ranking includes the 41 best European agencies for prosecuting and defending European patents before the EPO, and ZBM is the only Spanish firm included among them.

This recognition means we have been highly praised by clients and peers and are among the most competitive. Good proof of our performance before the EPO are our amazing results in opposition and appeal proceedings before the EPO which are well-above the European average in favour of our clients.
