Who's Who Legal Brazil - Patents

Luiz Leonardos helped to shape Brazil’s current intellectual property scene and gives his name to Luiz Leonardos & Advogados, a firm established following the split, on 30 April 2012, of the traditional IP firm Momsen Leonardos & Cia.

At the end of the 1950s, Luiz Leonardos – the only son of IP lawyer Thomas Othon Leonardos to also practise law – joined Momsen, Leonardos & Cia as a partner. Luiz Leonardos distinguished himself in the intellectual property arena, and took part in the Brazilian delegation to the Stockholm Conference of the Paris and Berne Conventions, at which the World Intellectual Property Organization was created. He has been involved in the Brazilian Industrial Property Association since it was founded in 1963 and has held various roles as general reporter, president and member of the board of directors; he is currently the Association’s honorary president. In 1992, he became executive vice president of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property, a role he held until 1995 when he became executive president. In 1998, he ended his presidency upon being nominated an honorary member of the Association. He is also an honorary member of the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys.

Luiz Leonardos’ notable career in intellectual property law is widely recognised among Brazilian and foreign specialists and publications. He is the author of several articles and has lectured extensively over the years, being invited to a number of congresses.

Luiz Leonardos provides strategic advice on IP complex issues, including litigation, to national and foreign clients in multiple industry sectors. Legal excellence and solid ethical conduct guide his practice and make him one of the most respected IP practitioners of his generation.

WWL says: "Leonardos is iconic in the Brazilian IP space."
