Becerril, Coca & Becerril SC

The rapidly evolving digital environment is dissolving jurisdictional boundaries and making global communication easier than ever. Today’s Industry 4.0 includes ubiquitous, mobile supercomputing, artificially intelligent robots, self-driving cars and genetic editing. Dramatic technological changes are occurring all around us at an exponential rate. Mexico’s international trade agreements have had a major impact on the country’s IP legislation, while ongoing legal reforms are significant affecting its internal market and economy. The strategic protection, appropriation and enforcement of IP rights plays a critical role in the growth and performance of businesses now more than ever.

Becerril, Coca & Becerril SC (BC&B) has specialised in the management and administration of clients’ intangible asset strategies since 1969. Our efforts for constant innovation in effectively taking care of our clients have broadened our services and allow us to assist clients in every corporate, civil and administrative affair that they require.

At BC&B, we count on the collaboration of our six partners, 30 lawyers and 40 engineers, among other personnel.

Our unique method has been recommended for local and international services in IP prosecution, contentious and licensing in the IAM Strategy 300, the WTR 1000, the IAM Patent 1000, the IP Monetisation Yearbook and by IP-specialised media such as Managing Intellectual Property, Chambers & Partners and Newton Media, Ltd.

At the heart of our organisation is a passion for protecting your ideas. We focus on designing a strategy that meets your requirements and creating a customised IP portfolio that encompasses your IP rights – including patents, trademarks, trade secrets, licensing agreements, corporate agreements and copyright – which will enable you to face the commercial market with all of the available resources.

Our strategic alliances with associates worldwide aid our operation as an international business hub in the Latin American IP sector. We have the infrastructure needed to support start-up incubation as a technology transference office. The National Council on Science and Technology has certified our operations model.

Our goal is to develop and apply the best solutions to promote strategically the growth of businesses by maximising the value of their IP rights. Our experience since 1969 and our clients – Fortune 100 companies, as well as research centres, universities, start-ups and entrepreneurs around the world – endorse our expertise and competitiveness.

Over our nearly 50-year history, we have implemented a strategic knowledge management system in a public university using our specialised Clever Value tool and successfully listed pharmaceutical patents in the Linkage Gazette by filing formal requests before the Mexican Patent Office and lobbying through the National Chamber of the Pharmaceutical Industry; one of these patents relates to a biologic drug.

Additionally, BC&B has collaborated on a six-month training programme at the patenting centre of one of the largest government higher education institutions in Mexico. As part of the programme, we offered practical training sessions on best practices for technology transfer and case analysis, as well as projects to improve basic and advanced negotiation, contract drafting and valuation skills. We have also designed the trademark defence strategy for a highly recognised tire manufacturing company.

BC&B’s ability to add value to your venture and our passion for protecting your ideas allow us to fully support your core business.
