We protect the most valuable part of your business: your identity and ideas.




We protect the most valuable part of your business: your identity and ideas.





Protecting the results of your investment in R&D through patents is the best way of making your effort in time and economic and human resources profitable and will enable you to incorporate your discoveries into the intangible assets of your company.

Patents grant you the right to exclusively exploit the result of your inventive activity and become effective instruments that will protect you against third parties that attempt to copy, imitate and exploit your goods without your permission, undoing the huge effort you made as the lawful holder of the industrial property rights.


Our team of experts will handle the prior consultancy and will be at your side throughout the process of registering your patents, always offering the most appropriate type of protection for your product or service and helping you resolve and overcome any incident that may arise during the process or any infringement of your rights in the future.

This level of protection is possible due to our expert team formed of official agents, engineers, chemists and practising qualified lawyers, certified before the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (SPTO), before the European Patent Office (EPO), before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and before the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). We are also members of AIPPI and INTA.
