Intellectual Property

Intellectual property rights are becoming more and more important to their owners, businessmen and financial advisors. In many cases, intellectual property rights are more valuable than the physical assets of a company, as is the case with well-known brands.

CMS Grau has a multidisciplinary team with extensive experience in matters of protection, registration, renewal and modification of Intellectual Property rights, as for example products and services trademarks, commercial slogans, trade names, invention patents, industrial designs, utility models, copyrights and related rights.

We assist our clients in the monitoring, control and defense of the rights granted by the registration of an industrial property element and of the interests of our clients against the illegitimate use by third parties before the administrative and judicial bodies.

We offer advice on the preparation, negotiation and execution of contracts related to industrial property elements such as licenses for use, distribution agreements, transfers, constitution of guarantees, etc.

Additionally, we advise our clients on registration, opposition and renewal of domain names.

Representative clients: Air France, Alitalia, Panamanian Aviation Company COPA, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Avior, Braille, MSA of Peru, Monsanto, Falabella Saga, Tottus Hypermarkets, Falabella Travel, Santiago Queirolo, Banco Falabella, Abaco, Unilever, Technological Resources Pty Limited, etc.
