Gusmão & Labrunie ranked as Gold in IAM Patent 1000

“Gusmão & Labrunie is an undisputable leader in the patent field – its team’s business-tailored strategies, accuracy of opinion and composed courtroom demeanour distinguish it from competitors. José Roberto Gusmão and João Vieira da Cunha set the tone from the top. “Gusmão is a complete professional who thoroughly understands the business of patents on a global scale.” “da Cunha is one of the most respected lawyers of the new generation, and for good reason. He gives the impression of exclusivity to each client and his attention to detail before important magistrates makes the difference in lawsuits.” Jacques Labrunie likewise brings the heat in disputes: he recently landed a big win in a crucial infringement claim in the metallurgical arena, where he turned defence into a profitable attack. The non-contentious wing of the practice also makes waves, with Priscila de Barros Thereza Yamashita in the thick of things. With an unerring instinct for assessing Brazil’s regulatory environment, she dispenses perceptive advice relating to pharmaceuticals in particular. She recently overcame a patent office rejection to provide protection for a composition drug on behalf of Laboratório Catarinense.”
