Before becoming a full-time academician, Maximiliano practised as a lawyer, mediator, and industrial property consultant for almost two decades in Argentina, specialising in intellectual property disputes.

Some of his recent publications are Incorporating exceptions and limitations to copyright law to incentivise the development of Artificial Intelligence in Latin America (Latin American Law Review, no. 9, Universidad de Los Andes, BogotÃ¡, Colombia, 2022); Victor Hugo Betrayed: The Domain Public Payant as Intended in the 19th Century and as Implemented Today (Review of Economic Research on Copyright Issues, vol. 18, no. 1, pp. 56-80, 2021), Copyright Protection for Interior Design Projects (Gewerblicher Rechtsschutz und Urheberrecht, Internationaler Teil, vol. 70 no. 2, pp. 205-209, 2021); Paying for works in the public domain? The "domaine public payant" in the 21st century (Gewerblicher Rechtsschutz und Urheberrecht Internationaler Teil, vol. 64, no. 4, p. 343 et seq., 2019).
