Intellectual Property Alumni Spotlight
Chicago-Kent's Intellectual Property Law Society presents a series of short profiles of alumni in IP practice. Check back to read about more alums as the collection of profiles grows.
Mariano Municoy graduated with an LL.M. in International Intellectual Property Law, with high honors, from Chicago-Kent in 2004. His thesis on cross border patent disputes was published in the Chicago-Kent Journal of Intellectual Property, and was included in an official bibliography prepared by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. Before attending Chicago-Kent, Mr. Municoy practiced as a lawyer and an IP agent in Argentina.
Mr. Municoy currently a candidate for the LL.M. in Law & Economics at Torcuato Di Tella University (Argentina), while working with Moeller & Co., a Latin American IP law firm based in Buenos Aires, Argentina that has been rendering international IP services for more than 70 years. At Moeller, he handles local and international matters almost exclusively related to IP (such as patents, trademarks, domain names disputes, as well as IP transactions, including implementing legal and business strategies for commercializing IP). Mr. Municoy says that he has been very lucky to join Moeller, because Moeller has other IP lawyers with more than 20 years experience (including a mediator and a lawyer focused on domain names legal disputes), providing him with an excellent source of knowledge.
In addition, Mr. Municoy is Moeller's link with companies and law firms from the U.S., where he travels on a regular basis to meet existing and potential clients as well as to attend meetings on behalf of Moeller & Co. (such as those organized by the Intellectual Property Section of the American Bar Association, the Intellectual Property Owners Organization (IPO), the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), LES US-Canada Chapter, INTA ).
More information about Mr. Municoy can be found on the Moeller & Co. website.
