What do we include?

Our fees for processing the registration include the prior examination to avoid debates with previously registered rights of third parties. Our fees also include the filing of pleadings, if necessary, in the event of oppositions filed by third parties, as well as any appeals in administrative proceedings that may be necessary to obtain the registration of the trademark.

Spain, Europe or worldwide?

It is up to the client to decide. It depends on their initial economic capacity and their marketing projection.

From Spain we can process the registration of trademarks, designs and patents in Spain through the “SPTO”. We can also process through “EUIPO” the European trademark and the European design, which will be valid in 28 countries. This will allow us to oppose attempts to register new trademarks or designs from any of these countries. However, we will not have the legal capacity to sue in those countries, and we will only be able to make legal claims in Spain, against companies with a registered office or delegation in our country.

We can also process worldwide patents through the PCT system. This system has a prior international examination process, which lasts about 12 months. At that time we can designate in which countries we want to be registered, and we can choose any of the 117 countries that are part of the system.

We tell you the first steps from the idea to the right of industrial or intellectual property.


Our first task will be to receive your inputs and advise you in order to provide you with the protection that best suits your project, offering you a registration service for the following intangible assets:

  • Trademarks and trade names: to protect the sale of products and services.

  • Patents and utility models: to protect your inventions and technical solutions.

  • Industrial designs: to protect your sketches

  • Intellectual property: to protect your works and creations, as well as your software or         applications.

  • Business secrecy: to protect your know-how, your processes and your confidential information.

Commercialisation. we accompany you in the crowdfunding phases, drawing up licensing contracts for the exploitation of your intangible assets or assignment contracts, in the event that your project does not foresee exploitation on your own, or drawing up the contracts with clients or suppliers that your business may require. If you also need help from third parties to develop your business, we will draw up service contracts for you, and the confidentiality agreements you may need to guarantee the protection of your assets.

Comprehensive legal protection before the Spanish courts. We provide you with a team of lawyers who are experts in the procedural area, who will take care of protecting your rights. You will have us at your side to take legal action against any attempt to infringe your trademark, or against any violation of your patent or utility model, or against any copy of your designs. We act both in the commercial and criminal areas to defend you against competitors who try to take undue advantage of your registered rights.

Protection against infringements committed abroad. In the event of attempts by foreign companies to infringe your rights by introducing products onto the market that reproduce or imitate your distinctive signs, your designs or your inventions, we will file a complaint on your behalf and contact the competent authority to stop the entry of materials into our borders through customs. With these actions we do not only prevent the entry into Spain of counterfeit products, but we also collaborate with the authorities to improve and guarantee the legality of the products offered in our market.

Technology transfer. When your intangible assets have achieved the success expected, you can consider transferring, licensing or transferring them. The same applies if your business is based on the exploitation of intangible assets of third parties. You will need advice on negotiation and assistance in drafting contracts, but moreover it will be essential to be clear about the true value of your assets. To facilitate this process, we provide you with our asset valuation system.

Business secrecy. Since 2019, we have a new protection tool for our clients, the Trade Secrets Act. Through this means we can offer a new form of protection to our clients, for those cases in which the nature of the intangible asset they wish to protect requires that the content of their asset not be publicised or disclosed. We will take charge of drawing up the necessary protection measures to guarantee the secrecy of your company's knowledge, we will also create the protocols that allow its use without breaking its confidential nature, which will include physical or telematic access systems, proposals for forms of access identification, and legal measures that guarantee the correct compliance with these protocols.
