GALBAIAN has been listed once again as recommended patent firm in the IAM guide. GALBAIAN is the only patent firm headquartered in the Basque Country that is included in this guide.
On the other hand, Ismael Igartua, who was already listed as recommended patent attorney in previous editions, has now been listed as highly recommended. Only four patent attorneys have been considered highly recommended in Spain.
This is what the guide says about GALBAIAN and Ismael Igartua:
Lively boutique GALBAIAN has “a very skilful team that understands high-level engineering issues and solves problems swiftly and successfully. It makes things easy with clear reflection, robust drafting and a flexible, proactive approach. The proposals it brings are often ones that you wouldn’t have thought of. You really feel like you have a close partner when working with the team”.
A recent beneficiary of this personalised service is the Basque Innovation Agency, for which the firm drafted an IP framework agreement to promote cooperation with the region’s companies, research institutes and universities. This bore the fingerprints of Ismael Igartua, a “real leader and an extremely reliable professional who has a mastery of technical and procedural patent issues. He is skilled both in the arts and in the sciences, which makes him very special. Plus he has the ability to simply explain complex patent issues to those unfamiliar with the IP world. He is one of the best patent attorneys around”.
