Company Description

Arochi & Lindner is among the most respected and recognised names in intellectual property protection. It handles all aspects of trademark, patent, copyright, trade secret protection, enforcement, advertising and marketing law, as well as civil and commercial litigation, corporate and regulatory law. With offices located in Mexico City, Madrid and Barcelona, the firm provides a Latin America–European gateway for IP services. Since its founding in 1994, Arochi & Lindner has recognized that knowing the law is not sufficient; rather, its responsibility is to represent the best interests of each individual client. It has consistently distinguished itself by combining legal expertise and an exceptional understanding of business needs. Furthermore, over the years, Arochi & Lindner has anticipated the evolving IP market by developing a tenacious enforcement practice, enhancing its patent practice with industry-specific technical competencies and adding commercial litigation capabilities to address related business issues. The three most important reasons to choose Arochi & Lindner are: (1) Industry leaders recognise it as the leading expert in intellectual property protection in Mexico and the Latin America-European gateway; (2) It is a large firm that does not lose sight of small details; and (3) Its lawyers are innovative advocates who deliver value with business solutions. MAIN AREAS OF PRACTICE: Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement. We safeguard IP from anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy through preventive and corrective actions that include border measures. In cooperation with the Federal police, our work resulted in the first organised crime indictment arising from counterfeit goods. Since then, we are responsible for the greatest number of actions and seizures of illicit goods in Mexico. Intellectual Property Litigation. We design winning legal strategies to protect clients' assets in high-stakes IP disputes involving trademarks, patents, copyrights and unfair competition matters at the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) and the Mexican Courts. Trademarks, trade names, domain names and related rights. We are skilled in searching and preparing business centric legal opinions on the availability, registrability and protectability of trademarks and similar rights, and advise on all aspects of protection, maintenance and enforcement. We also negotiate and draft licenses, franchise agreements and other commercial transactions involving transfers or authorisations of rights. Patents. Drawing on the knowledge of our lawyers and technical professionals trained in electronics, engineering, biology and chemistry, and in consultation with the client, we focus on understanding each client’s innovations and commercial opportunities in order to secure appropriate rights. Once a patent application is filed, we actively monitor the examination process and after a patent is granted, we maintain an accurate docket to ensure the timely payment of annual fees. In transactional work, we prepare opinions and negotiate and draft technology transfers, license agreements and assignments of rights. Copyright and Authors' Rights. We advise on and protect all types of literary, musical and artistic works in traditional and new media, including negotiation of rights, preparation of agreements, contracts, licenses, assignments related to copyrighted works. Advertising and Marketing. We counsel on the legal aspects of promoting and advertising products and services, including providing opinions that ensure that clients' advertising and marketing claims, representations and methods of communication do not violate the law. We also advise on data protection and litigate administrative decisions that affect advertisers’ interests. Civil and Commercial Litigation. We handle all types of matters in disputes adjudicated by the courts in trials ranging from ordinary summary proceedings to appeals, including claims for damages and other relief. Our lawyers also are trained experts in alternative dispute resolution. Regulatory. We provide advice on and representation before the responsible government authorities regarding administrative and compliance requirements of doing business in Mexico, maximizing investment and managing risk.
