Our sister firm, Sargent & Krahn, is the oldest Intellectual Property (IP) firm in Chile and offers comprehensive services in this area. For instance, we can name the following: searches, filing and processing of trademarks and patents; regulation of IP rights; litigation; negotiation and drafting of license agreements; pharmaceutical regulation; information technology (IT); database protection and negotiation of software licenses.
We especially value the relationship with our clients. Therefore, each client is appointed a general IP counsel who is teamed with a litigation attorney. We also have expert technical professionals with experience in matters related to engineering, electronics, chemistry, biology, software and pharmaceutical products.
Sargent & Krahn has developed an extensive international network of correspondents who collaborate in the registration and litigation of trademarks and patents of Chilean companies abroad.
Our firm’s ability to develop in-house products and services sets us apart from our competition and facilitates contact with our clients. In 1991, we developed WEEKMARK, now a computer platform freely accessible by our clients to check the status of their trademarks and conduct limited searches of trademarks owned by third parties. Our firm relaunched this platform in 2013 after adapting it to the needs of today and adding new applications.
