The Intellectual Property Law Practice:
The vast majority of Goodrich, Riquelme y Asociados’ intellectual property work is for non-Mexican companies conducting business in Mexico. Their staff of attorneys, engineers and computer specialists help adapt foreign patent specifications and claims to Mexican law, secure patent inventions and trademark registration and maintain them by handling the necessary renewals.
GRA’s computer system, which is linked to the Mexican Patent and Trademark Department, permits the firm to provide clients with a timely notice of their intellectual property matters. They also perform trademark searches and prepare and register license agreements. Due to recent changes in technology, the firm is increasingly being called on for assistance in licensing and litigation relating to computer software as well as for complex licensing negotiations and settlements involving patents, trademarks and copyrights.
GRA’s lawyers handle litigation for clients in all areas such as licensing, patent and trademark infringement, including counterfeiting, unfair competition cases, pirating and unlawful duplication of computer software. The firm is also active in Entertainment and Sport deals.
