Federis & Associates Law Offices (FEDERIS) is a boutique law firm, one of just a handful in the Philippines whose practice is focused exclusively on intellectual property law. FEDERIS is proof that in IP, a firm’s size truly does not matter. Focus and expertise are what get results. This firm packs a powerful punch: it consistently ranks as one of the top trademark and patent filers in the country and has scored big wins for household-name brands before the Intellectual Property Office and the Supreme Court.
A culture of service is deeply ingrained in everyone on the very capable team, which includes highly-qualified attorneys, seasoned paralegals, licensed engineers and agents, and dedicated administrative staff. They work closely with clients to come up with creative, tailor-made solutions that are implemented simply and seamlessly. Drawing upon their vast knowledge and extensive experience in different areas of IP, they skillfully guide clients through the intricacies of local practice. At FEDERIS, relationships with clients are carefully nurtured through regular communication and rapid action to ensure that expectations are not only met, but surpassed.
Now more than ever, IP is an ever-evolving field, and FEDERIS bravely evolves along with it. The firm meticulously tracks new developments, both domestic and international, quickly complies with new regulations and legislation, and promptly adopts new practices. Businesses must constantly innovate in order to succeed in today’s quickly changing landscape. They should be able to do this freely, without getting entangled in red tape or stifled by the prospect of litigation. With FEDERIS, they are assured that the firm appreciates the value of their creative work, understands the need to protect their intellectual property, and anticipates the challenges of execution. The firm can be counted to produce quality work that matches the quality of their clients’ ideas.
FEDERIS’ track record speaks for itself. Both the firm and its managing partner, Mila Federis, have been recognized by industry peers for consistently delivering. A firm with a big heart, FEDERIS gives back to the community by providing legal aid and financial support to various charitable causes.
