Intellectual Property – Patents & Trademarks

Our Intellectual Property Department offers a one-stop shop for all IP issues, delving far deeper than traditional patent and trademark services to offer comprehensive guidance serving national and international clients seeking to promote and protect their brands, products and ideas in Argentina and beyond. We work with clients in every industry, and have extensive experience ranging from agribusiness, life sciences, sports and the arts to the software and technology developers driving the modern economy.

We provide strategic advice for IP law enforcement, including data protection and privacy. Our expertise in contract negotiation and drafting includes work for hire, assignment of IP rights, trademarks and patents licenses, software licenses, outsourcing and ancillary agreements, know-how and industrial secrets licenses, attachment of trademarks, confidentiality, distribution, manufacturing, agency, publishing, use of image, advertising, downloading of content and multimedia.

The dedicated patent and trademark unit manages the coordination and prosecution of copyrights, trademarks, patents and utility models, industrial models and designs, and domain name portfolios.

Our experts also manage lawsuits relating to intellectual and industrial property rights and unfair competition, and advise on litigation strategies.

With ever-evolving global and national trends resulting in regular amendments to IP regulations, the team maintains close contact with the relevant regulatory authorities and keeps clients abreast of the latest developments.

We advise on regulatory issues at the national and provincial level, as well as for cross-border deals, and assist global clients with IP issues related to their market entry strategies. Our network of relationships with correspondents throughout the country ensures clients’ regional operations are well-served.
