Alexandra Vital Alves is legal counsel at i4F Patents & Technologies in Belgium
Alexandra Vital Alves has only been at her company, i4F, since May 2020 but has already made quite the impression on the business, which develops patented flooring technologies and licenses them.
A source close to her says they have seen a lot of young lawyers working over the years.
“I can say that in terms of quality and dedication that Alexandra beats them all.”
Alves is responsible for drafting all of the company’s licences and manages its growing trademark portfolio.
Alves notes that she is very interested in IP and that she’s continuously staying up to date on new emerging technologies, industry trends and legal innovations in the field.
“My current ambition is to continue to absorb as much knowledge and experience in the different areas of the field of IP law to ultimately determine the path I want to take within the industry,” she says.
“However, I am certain that I want to continue being a key part of workforces that strive to push and break boundaries with innovation.”
She obtained her Bachelor of Laws from Cardiff University in 2018 and her Master of Laws from the University of Manchester in 2019.
