IAM Patent 1000 once again recognises Ricardo Nascimento Ferreira and Vasco Stilwell d'Andrade

Ricardo Nascimento Ferreira and Vasco Stilwell d'Andrade have once again been honoured by the IAM Patent 1000 directory for 2024. Both maintain their ‘Gold’ classification, the highest rating.

Morais Leitão has also been recognised with a ‘Gold’ rating in the ‘Firms: litigation and transactions’ category and is ‘Recommended’ in the ‘Firms: prosecution’ category.

The IAM Patent 1000 confirms the distinction: ‘The firm's department is boosted by the hard work of Vasco Stilwell d'Andrade, who possesses deep market knowledge, particularly excelling in pharmaceutical patent litigation. He champions the causes of patrons before the Portuguese Institute of Industrial Property and the EUIPO. Alongside him is Ricardo do Nascimento Ferreira, whose expertise spans contentious and non-contentious matters, notably in the pharmaceutical industry where he caters to local and international clientele. The pair collaborate seamlessly to advise Teva on various litigation matters and they have recently represented the company against Mylan in the defence of its patent-protected drug Copaxone. This included providing guidance in matters of Portuguese IP law and representing Teva in judicial proceedings before the Intellectual Property Court."
