H&A, once again recognized by IAM Patent 1000, both as a company and the value of several of its professionals.

25 July 2023

The objective of the IAM Patent 1000 is to provide a listing of the world’s leading patent experts based on feedback received from those operating in the market. Patents are essential business products and knowing how to obtain and monetize them has become mission critical for companies in all industries. The guide has been produced after an extensive research process.

Both the firm and our professionals have been recognized in this directory in several countries:

As for the detail of our professionals…


“H&A’s Rafaela Mattos is a walking encyclopedia of prosecution procedures that ensures unassailable protection for household names in fields ranging from telecommunications to mechanics.”


Adriana Peñaranda is a great contact for IP matters in Latin America. She has in-depth knowledge of the innovation process and experience in technology transfer, a hot commodity for universities.”


Our firm, with an international team of more than 170 IP professionals, is a benchmark for companies seeking an IP strategy in multiple territories. With a presence in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico, we have cultivated a wealth of experience in Latin America, a region where we have a strong presence.

Partners Ariel Juan Ibáñez and Alejandro María Grande are in charge of the Buenos Aires office. Working within the confines of the national system, they have a knack for meeting the expectations of foreign companies interested in applying the standards and approaches they are accustomed to elsewhere, such as in Europe. Extremely well organized and excellent in details and the big picture, they deftly handle broad patent families in diverse markets, while streamlining the prosecution process.


H&A is ideally placed to handle cross-border patent protection in the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds. “It uses its network very effectively and does a fantastic job of dealing with challenging logistics and tight deadlines.” Karla Islas, head of that office, has a strong technical background in food chemistry, along with strong commercial knowledge.


The technical versatility of H&A’s lawyers makes it an attractive option for innovative companies seeking to protect and enforce their intellectual assets. With offices in Latin America and Portugal, clients can leverage the team’s international network to gain a unique global perspective. Jesús González, head of patent prosecution, has an established track record in obtaining worldwide patent protection and devising successful defenses of patent applications to ensure that his clients’ inventions are sufficiently protected. “Manuel Perez takes the time to learn about different technologies and pays attention to detail. He offers ongoing advice on protection strategies in an easy-to-understand manner.” Bolstering the offering with her litigation experience, Marta Gimeno has significant knowledge of the PV industry and strong oral advocacy skills to comprehensively defend and enforce the rights of users of her services.

H&A is proud of this recognition and citation; professionalism, ethics and hard work are noteworthy for every member of H&A.

Congratulations to all: Rafaela, Karla, Adriana, Marta, Ariel, Alejandro, Jesus and Manuel!
