Como en años anteriores, en la edición de 2019 del «Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Professionals», el IAM ha listado a ZBM como “highly recommended” en la categoría de patentes para España.

Según destaca el IAM: “Clients are absolutely emphatic in their praise of ZBM’s patent filing and prosecution services, which operates in virtually all technical areas and covers a broad range of services, from contentious support through to oppositions and straight-up filing. Competitors admire the modern, open atmosphere at the firm – partners at ZBM know how to treat people and ensure there’s a pathway for technical people to follow”. Furthermore, in the words of a client highlighted by IAM: “I have been involved in many oppositions with other IP firms through various clients, and if it was up to me, I would only use ZBM. Why? For one thing, they simply keep winning. You can’t argue with results. Also, they are incredible easy to work with. Not to mention, they are open-minded and allow for excellent exchange of ideas.

ZBM también aparece en el ranking que recoge las principales firmas que trabajan frente a la Oficina Europea de Patentes (EPO), y se mantiene como única agencia española entre las 27 empresas seleccionadas a nivel europeo.

Finalmente, el IAM también reconoce a Anna Barlocci, Bernabé Zea, Carles Comes, Mathieu de Rooij y Montserrat Jané como “recommended individuals” con excelentes opiniones.

De Anna se dice que “she is probably one of the best patent attorneys in Spain. She has a very good reputation for her teaching capabilities and is easily able to explain the intricacies of the most complex patenting issues in simple language”. De Bernabé que “is well-known for his role as a court expert often used by generics companies, alongside for his astonishing technology transfer capabilities”. De Carles que es capaz de gestionar “with the highest standards and never fail to tie up the loose ends when drafting”. De Mathieu que es “very competent and skilled, great to work with, challenging and always engaging, an intuitive thinker with a rational, practical mind“. Y finalmente, de Montse que “always seems to come up with crafty arguments whenever she is engaged to prepare or defend a life sciences patent as part of ZBM’s highly prized pharmaceuticals offering”.
