ABG IP is pleased to announce that it has again been ranked as “highly recommended Intellectual Property firm in Spain” according to the magazine Intellectual Asset Management (IAM). ABG IP has been placed in this top position since the first publication of IAM Patents 1000 guide in 2012.
ABG IP has been acknowledged as a top prosecution firm and according to client and peer opinions: “One of the best for patent work in the life sciences”, “the firm boasts a large cadre of experts who excel on complex legal and technical issues”, ABG “consistently demonstrates sound business judgement and a resolute focus on quality”. “It also generously invests in educating the collective IP community in Spain and beyond”. “The set has an insider’s knowledge of the European IP protection regime, having several former European Patent Office (EPO) examiners on its staff”.
Moreover, Francisco Bernardo maintains a “highly recommended” individual position. “Francisco has a complete knowledge of patent law and international prosecution – particularly in Asia and the United states – while being hugely experienced at the EPO. He knows the pharmaceutical sector like the back of his hand too”.
Juan Arias Sanz, Enric Carbonell, Fernando Prieto and Agustin Alconada are recognized as recommended individuals for patent prosecution as well.
Lighting up the chemistry team is founding partner and ex-examiner Juan Arias, who is frequently called on as a technical expert in litigations.

“Brilliant biotechnology specialist” Agustín Alconada, a “profoundly knowledgeable professional with an open mind and ability to adapt quickly to the changing demands of his field and requirements of his clients”.
“Over on the high-tech side, and specifically in the electro-mechanical and telecoms spheres, Fernando Prieto is the person to call. His eye for detail is trusted by some influential industry names, including Airbus”.
These results are based on over 1,500 interviews, with both private practice and in-house professionals in more than 40 Jurisdictions. A complete list of the top patent practitioners is available at the IAM Patent 1000 guide.
