Ismael is a founding partner and director of GALBAIAN. He began his career in the field of intellectual property (IP) in 1998 upon joining the Industrial Property Department of the Fagor Group as a patent adviser. He headed the Department from 2005 until the founding of GALBAIAN in 2011.

After acquiring a complete overview of IP in the Master’s Degree course of Alicante, he focussed his efforts in specialising in the patentability analysis and the drafting and processing of patent applications, as well as infringement risk and patent validity studies. He also acquired much experience in patent disputes, actively participating and coordinating patent litigation in different countries, as well as offering advice in IP management and strategy.

Ismael has been continually committed to the creation of a patent culture in our environment. Since 2010, he has headed the Specialisation Course on Patents in the Company, acting as a lecturer in training courses on patents for both working professionals and university students and being a regular speaker at forums, seminars, and conferences on patents.
