"A team of able lawyers who give clarity on the strategy and possible outcomes," Villaraza & Angangco deservedly makes its first appearance in the IAM Patent 1000. “We only have positive comments for them – we’ve never had any negative experience,” one foreign associate enthuses, while a satisfied client quips: “V&A is the best experience I ever had with IP law firms in the Philippines.” Replete with technical expertise, six lawyers and a paralegal make up the proactive patent team that offers “correct and quick responses” to clients seeking to draft and file patents. It is not to be underestimated in the contentious space either – local generic companies depend on the full-service law outfit to defend them against multinational pharmaceutical giants. With a background in molecular biology, Ma Sophia Editha Cruz-Abrenica handles patent applications and invalidation cases with verve. She recently represented Innogen Pharmaceuticals against Merck Sharp & Dohme in a patent cancellation suit.
