  • Representing US pharmaceutical companies in unfair competition and trade secrets case against the Brazilian government.
  • Representing an international medical device company against Brazilian competitors.
  • Representing several high-tech companies in IP infringement cases around Brazil.
  • Representing a biotechnology association in the most relevant IP case pending before the Brazilian Supreme Court.
