Patent Rights and Intellectual Property
Professional practice in this matter has been traditionally oriented to complex administrative proceedings and disputes involving parallel imports, competition law, counterfeiting of products and protection of slogans and fantasy names. In recent years, the practice has spread to the registration and maintenance of trademarks and patents.
The most relevant cases include:
- Representation of a French luxury brands firm in a judicial seizure of counterfeit clothing.
- Representation in an injunction to seize counterfeited products in the Uruguayan border.
- Legal actions for the defense of a patent in the area of traceability.
- Legal actions for the protection of an international brand where the mark identification had been modified without manufacturer’s authorization.
- Domain names
