Associate, Rechtsanwältin Munich
Profile of Leyre Barragán

I enjoy advising clients with the launch of new products. How to best solve the question of how, where and when to protect my client’s IP rights is what motivates me daily. It is also important to me to find cost-effective and timely solutions to soft IP conflicts.

Before joining D Young & Co in 2023, I worked for a German IP boutique law firm for almost nine years. Before that, I worked as a trainee at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) Boards of Appeal.

I advise my clients in non-contentious and contentious matters relating to trade marks, designs, domains, unfair competition, and copyright. For instance, I help my clients develop global trade mark and design filing strategies at an international level, enforce their rights, and negotiate soft-IP related contracts such as license, prior rights or asset purchase and assignment agreements.

I represent my clients in soft-IP proceedings before all EU and German instances and courts and at the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO).

My mother tongue is Spanish and I am fluent in German, English and French.
