Immaterial assets, created by the inventiveness of humankind, are specially protected by laws. Intellectual property is one of the most important assets for both individuals and corporations, and sometimes exceeds the company’s set of material assets.

Our team of lawyers are prepared to provide special attention to intellectual property issues. Our representation is provided through consultancy for the protection of industrial property and copyright law (software, images and works), patents. In litigation cases, the firm represents lawsuits to defend intellectual right of authorship, taking precautionary measures to halt the undue use of protected rights and to intermediate and negotiate the value of the intellectual property at hand.

Other fields of representation include copyright rights, patents, biotechnology, product brand and services, commercial confidentiality, unfair competition and franchising.
