Legal Affairs

Our Legal Affairs Group provides general counsel on corporate and business law and also designs IP portfolio growth and defense strategies.

 

We counsel clients in all aspects regarding the creation of an adequate legal structure for their businesses. We accompany them through their growth, competition and change processes. We participate in mergers, acquisitions and other transformations, as well as in the legal requirements that companies face on a daily basis.

 

When dealing with investments in Argentina and abroad, strategic alliances, joint-ventures or cooperation consortiums, we participate in contract negotiations providing trained, stable and competent negotiators for each task.

 

We advice our clients on the best way to obtain economic returns from their IP assets. We have vast experience negotiating and drafting all types of related contracts, including licensing, purchase, sale, assignment, technology transfer and franchising agreements.

We enforce our clients’ IP against infringement and defend it against charges from third parties. We are versed in judicial and extrajudicial dispute resolution proceedings and are also proud of our litigation record, having successfully represented our clients in complex cases before local courts. Our legal and scientific background proves to be of invaluable advantage in sophisticated patent cases.

 

We have a profound knowledge of the special legal frame applying to the main economic activities in Argentina, and advise our clients considering the special features of the market.

 

When legal actions arise, our attorneys are acute, precise and effective. Our clients trust their experience and knowledge on conflict resolution and their skills for delivering outstanding results.
