A transparent market is essential to avoid abuses and allow players to compete on their merits. Intellectual property rights are a key asset for competitiveness and form the basis for success in all sectors of the economy.

What sets us apart is our close relationships with clients, built on a wealth of experience and a thorough understanding of the technical, practical and commercial problems that arise in their regulatory environments and when pursuing their long-term strategies.

We are known for our role in developing doctrine through academic publications that have been accepted and relied upon by courts, as well as for our rigorous analysis and innovative approach to delivering solutions.

Receiving commercially savvy advice is vital for the most innovative and efficient companies – it can prove to be the difference in difficult cases and plays a key role in monetising R&D&I and designing new business strategies.

We advise clients spanning the main strategic sectors on a broad range of matters: pharmaceuticals, chemicals, automobiles, electronics, cosmetics, textiles, defence, services (telecommunications, software, media, banking and finance, public works), food and beverages, farming (plant varieties) and commerce (e-commerce, consumer goods and retail).

We handle:

  • Complex litigation concerning the infringement and nullity of patents, trademarks, industrial designs and plant varieties through acts of unfair competition or false advertising, as well as the protection of image rights
  • Class-action lawsuits regarding general terms and conditions
  • Pre-litigation advice and the negotiation and drafting of contracts transferring or licensing intellectual property rights
