H&A has been recognized by IAM Patent 1000, the World’s Leading Patent Professionals, a unique guide that identifies the top patent professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe.

IAM Patent 1000 aim is to produce the definitive list of the world’s leading patent experts, based on feedback received from those operating in the market. Patents are essential business commodities and knowing how to obtain, enforce and monetize them has become a critical mission for companies in all industries. The guide has been compiled following an extensive research process.

H&A firm and several professionals from its different branches have been appointed to this directory in several countries as follows:


“H&A’s Rafaela Mattos is a walking encyclopaedia of prosecution procedure who secures impregnable protection for household names in fields from telecommunications to mechanics”


“Flying the flag of Spanish firm H&A, Adriana Peñaranda is a valued on-the-ground contact for clients engaged in IP matters in Latin America. She has a mature understanding of the innovation process and expertise on technology transfer that make her a hot commodity for universities.”


An international outfit with 150-plus IP professionals all pulling in the same direction for technology enterprises, H&A is a prime destination for companies for which a consistent approach towards IP strategy across multiple territories is a priority. With boots on the ground in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico, it has cultivated rich experience across Latin America – a market which presents unique challenges. Frequent collaborators Ariel Juan Ibanez and Alejandro María Grande take charge in Buenos Aires. Working within the confines of the national system, they have a gift for satisfying the expectations of foreign companies keen to apply the standards and approaches to which they are accustomed elsewhere, such as in Europe. Supremely well organised and great on the detail and the big picture, they handle broad patent families in diverse markets with skill, while expediting the prosecution process.


With a solid footprint in Europe and Latin America, H&A is ideally situated to handle cross-border patent protection in the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking worlds. “It uses its network very effectively and does a fantastic job dealing with challenging logistics and tight deadlines.” Karla Islas, recently named as director, has a strong technical background in food chemistry, coupled with well-developed commercial nous.


The soup-to-nuts patent service at H&A makes it a fantastic choice for one-stop shopping: from start-ups to industry heavyweights, companies can find everything they need to protect their crown-jewel assets under one roof. Additional bases in Latin America ensure that inventors with intercontinental ambitions on either side of the Atlantic are well catered for. The firm is characterised by its “proactivity and professionalism” – qualities which are embodied in department head Jesús González. The mechanical engineer has chalked up 35 years in the game and is lauded for his entrepreneurial mentality. Former EPO examiner Manuel Pérez is a repository of trust for major software entities, thanks to his unerring instincts on patentability and extensive in-house insight gleaned from roles at major global telecommunications companies.

H&A is proud of this recognition and mention; the professionalism, ethics and hard work is worth mentioning for each member of H&A.

Congratulations to all of you: Rafaela, Karl, Adriana, Ariel, Alejandro, Jesús and Manuel!
