Paula Moreno

I joined Hogan Lovells in 2012 as a legal trainee thanks to the existing agreement between our office and the LLM in intellectual property law which I was attending.

I have been involved in the management of worldwide trade mark portfolios and global clearance searches.

One of my personal highlights was my six-month Secondment as an IP consultant at one of our pharmaceutical client's headquarters in Switzerland. This experience gave me a better understanding of client's needs and in-house team's ways of working.

I have also had the opportunity to participate in an international IP networking event where I met several colleagues from other offices and where we shared our experience and knowledge during workshops. These kinds of events are a fantastic platform to further develop virtual working relationships.

Have your professional expectations been fulfilled in Hogan Lovells?

Hogan Lovells has shown me its full commitment to the continuing professional development of its staff. Personally, I have seen an evolution in my career thanks to the constructive feedback, help and support of mentors and partners, who even gave me the opportunity to learn from a secondment experience and be involved in pro bono and rewarding citizenship activities.
Hogan Lovells has its own set of internal training courses and webinars which I fully take advantage of. In addition, thanks to our close relationship with the European trade mark office based in Alicante, we can attend conferences and be in touch with several IP colleagues.

I simply enjoy the work that I do at Hogan Lovells and the people that I work with every day.
