García & Bodán Costa Rica Welcomes New Intellectual Property Director
García & Bodán has appointed Cristina Mora Granados as director, who arrives to consolidate the Costa Rican team and to strengthen the intellectual property practice in the region.
Mora has focused her practice on providing advice in negotiations, proceedings and procedures carried out both in Costa Rica and at regional and Caribbean level. Her experience includes the coordination with clients’ issues of protection and defense of business in both corporate law and intellectual property, also including notarial law, registry, contractual and administrative issues. She also has experience in labor law, private, administrative, judicial and customs offices.
“The hiring of Cristina is really a great addition to the firm, as it aims to strengthen the area as we can now clearly say that we have a robust intellectual property team present throughout the Central American region. It is an honor to have her on the team, as she is a person who has stood out over the years for her professional excellence," said regional managing partner Terencio García.
Carlos Téllez, managing partner of the firm in Costa Rica commented on the clear vision of development that García & Bodán has. "The hiring of Cristina is strategic for our local and regional intellectual property practice. We were looking for a colleague with the professional background and experience to take the challenge of leading our intellectual property practice and it was an interesting task, since in Costa Rica you can find a lot of talent available, and among such talent we chose Cristina, given her professional vision and passion for intellectual property."
"The current market is changing, as well as the subject matter of intellectual property, which has changed and evolved significantly in the last twenty years, giving rise to a key space in society. We must no longer limit ourselves as specialists to the simple registration and management of client portfolios, but we must expand and be at the cutting edge of the new topics that are being discussed in intellectual property, since we are facing a market of owners with an innovative intellectual property, for which we must ensure a specialized advisory that aims at protecting our clients along with the good practices that we can implement as specialists in this matter," concluded Mora.
