"I was always deeply interested in intellectual property law, copyright and entertainment law, but lately I have been missing challenges of greater scale. First, I met the firm - at the other side of the table -, so I had a chance to get a personal impression of the professional attitude of the lawyers working here, and the importance of the matters that they are carrying out" - commented Manuel Guerra Zamarro about his move.
These new additions underlines our continued investment in those areas that are increasingly important to our clients, such as entertainment law, copyright and technology. These also reflect our commitment to ensure that the diversity of our partnership develops to reflect the rich pool of talent across our firm today.
"The voices of this group, and other newer generationsin the firm, are essential in shaping our future in a fast-changing market environment."- Eduardo Kleinberg, Managing Partner and member of the Intellectual Property Group.
