OLIVARES is a world-class IP law firm that represents some of the world’s biggest brands. We receive numerous awards and accolades every year from industry magazines and peer reviews due to a combination of long-established trust, the highly personalised service we provide to our clients and a history of precedent-setting success in patent, trademark, copyright, regulatory, administrative and constitutional law. We leverage our 50 years of experience to offer a full range of IP, regulatory, administrative and some corporate law services across all industries.

Much of OLIVARES’ strength and uniqueness come from our sustained efforts to change and improve IP regulation in Mexico. The IP system is not always predictable and so we constantly challenge the system to improve it and thus create IP protection that is less open to question in litigation.

In patent work, our firm has the most diverse range of engineers in the Latin American market, enabling us to better navigate extremely technical issues with a more strategic approach than a traditional, general practice firm. We have filed over 14,000 patents in the past 10 years and the education backgrounds of our attorneys mean that we are able to file high volumes of top-quality patent applications.

In relation to trademark matters, we receive more accolades from industry publications than any other firm and have an outstanding record of enforcement and litigation success.

In regulatory and administrative law, we are breaking new ground and helping companies enforce rights granted by international treaties that are not being adjudicated adequately in Mexico. Further, the regulatory system in Mexico is complex to navigate and we have become experts in ensuring that our clients fulfil all their regulatory obligations.

Our repeated success in litigation leads clients to us when other firms have failed. Companies and outside counsel often come to us when they have failed in the first round of patent, trademark and copyright-related litigation. The size and depth of our expertise is unparalleled in the Mexican market.
