Intellectual Property

Our partner, Sargent & Krahn, is the oldest Chilean Intellectual Property firm in Chile and offers comprehensive services in this area. By way of example, we can list the following: the search, presentation and processing of trademarks and patents; copyright regulation, intellectual property litigation and negotiation and drafting of license agreements; regulatory issues related to pharmaceutical matters; advice related to information technology (IT), database protection and negotiation of software license agreements.

We especially value maintaining a close relationship with our clients. For this reason, we assign each one a lawyer who provides general advice, and works together with a lawyer specialized in litigation. We also have excellent technical professionals with experience in matters related to engineering, electronics, chemistry, biology, computing, and pharmaceutical products.

Sargent & Krahn has developed a vast international network of correspondents who collaborate with the registration and litigation of the trademarks and patents of local clients abroad.

Our ability to develop products and services internally distinguishes us from the competition and facilitates our contact with clients. In 1991, we developed WEEKMARK, which is now a computer platform that our clients can access free of charge to check the status of their trademarks, as well as to carry out limited searches of third-party trademarks. In 2013 we relaunched this platform, adjusting it to the current requirements and incorporating other applications.
