Our firm specializes in Intellectual Property matters. Our services include preparing, filing and prosecuting patent, trademark and design applications in Argentina and, through associate firms, throughout the world. We could also coordinate filing programs in Latin American countries, including distribution of our Spanish translations to associates designated by our clients, and/or prosecute counterpart patent and trademark applications in Latin American countries through our own associates, if required by our foreign or local clients.
We also offer litigation services in respect of patent and trademark infringement, trademark oppositions, licensing and related matters, including domain name registration and litigation.
