One client says: “We chose them based on their reputation, and we have continued to use them because they have lived up to expectations.” Luna is almost unanimously praised by his peers for his work in contentious matters: “You will hear Alejandro’s name wherever you go, especially in Mexico.

His skill is unmatched.” Peers also praise Sanchez’s practice stating that he “continues to impress those around him.” Gustavo Alcocer is also a key contact as he co-chairs the life sciences and pharmaceuticals group.

has a great understanding of client needs.” He most recently collaborated with Luna on the drafting of a proposal of changes in the law to comply with the TPP obligations on behalf of client AMIIF. Armando Arenas is in charge of patent infringement and invalidity litigation in the pharmaceutical sector.” Trademark & Copyright: “OLIVARES consistently delivers for clients.
