“KONDRAT & Partners has a superb office where attorneys prepare applications at the highest level. With rich experience in the life sciences, its lawyers are wholly dedicated to their field. They handle every matter with utmost care and precision, and, where necessary, use their wider support network as well.” Providing staunch leadership to the troop is the “dynamic and innovative” Mariusz Kondrat. As a patent attorney and a lawyer, he assiduously guides clients from ideation to creation and tenaciously enforces their rights too. Making her debut in the guide this year, Magdalena Jezierska-Zięba “is immensely knowledgeable in the field of organic chemistry and has the ability to effectively manage a company’s patents on an international scale”. Together, they advise leading pharmaceutical players such as US Pharmacia and SEQUOIAPharmaceuticals.”

“Mariusz Kondrat advises many life sciences clients on IP infringement cases, including patents and trade marks. Clients note his succinct advice, with one reporting that “he doesn’t talk much but he’s very to the point,” and describing him as “someone who can point to what he thinks is the best solution.”

World Trademark Review 2020

“Registering violet as a brand color for leading telecoms company PLAY was the showstopping moment of the year for the expanding team of highly skilled IP rights specialists at KONDRAT & Partners. With few colors registered at the Polish Patent Office, this marked a significant coup for the company and its client. The architect behind this outstanding achievement was managing partner and pharmaceutical and life sciences doyen Mariusz Kondrat – “an experienced and reliable adviser who is responsible for handling the most impressive trademark portfolios”. Co-captain of the trademark department and renowned author Ewa Niesiobędzka-Krause recently teamed up with Kondrat to handle potential actions and unfair competition analysis for global cosmetics company Avon.”
