Shortly before he was admitted to the Philippine bar in 1993, Andre joined the Manila office of Baker & McKenzie where, as a junior attorney, he gained practical experience in various fields of practice such as banking and finance, corporate commercial transactions, employment and dispute resolution. He eventually structured his practice to focus and specialize in intellectual property law. In 2005, he was designated to lead the intellectual property and information technology group and continued to act in that capacity until he left in 2011 to form Betita Cabilao Casuela Sarmiento with his colleagues from the same practice group. In his over two decades of practice of IP law, Andre has participated in numerous enforcement actions including raids and criminal prosecution, managed trademark portofolios of major brand owners, and reviewed IP-related issues in employment matters, mergers and acquisitions and licensing. Among the significant transactions and projects Andre handled over the years are:
  • MANAGING THE TRADEMARK PORTFOLIO OF A LEADING GERMAN AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURER

  • MANAGING THE TRADEMARK PORTFOLIO OF A LEADING FMGC BASED IN THE NETHERLANDS

Andre is an active committee member of the Enforcement Committee of the International Trademark Association
