  • In search of fast, effective and practical solutions to ur clients' legal disputes with third parties, we offer alternative services to judicial litigation through alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.

    We advise our clients on the different alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, such as the following:

    • direct negotiations
    • transactional agreements
    • conciliation
    • mediation
    • Amicable composition
    • arbitration

    Based on the objectives and culture of each of our clients, we evaluate each case from a legal and practical perspective to develop alongside our clients a strategy that adapts to those objectives and culture and allows us to obtain results in an efficient, effective and practical manner.

    We have extensive experience in intellectual property rights litigation before both criminal and civil jurisdictions.

  • There are many cases in which it is necessary to go before the Contentious-Administrative jurisdiction to invalidate administrative acts by means of which certain cases are decided.

    For example, in case trademarks, patents or designs are rejected, as well as when health registrations are denied, we defend our clients' rights by means of Annulment and Reinstatement Actions.

    Similarly, when seeking to annulment of an administrative act that grants a right to a third party, either because it violates our clients' rights or because it does not comply with the legal requirements, we defend our clients' interests by means of Annulment Actions.

  • We aggressively defend the rights of our clients against counterfeiting and piracy of their products, from medical products and luxury goods, to perfumes and software.

    We work together with our clients to develop a strategy to combat counterfeiting and piracy that meets their specific needs, always seeking to be effective and efficient in the pursuit of said objectives. We maintain an open and creative mind to propose and evaluate any strategic alternative, because we clearly understand that individual experiences add to the collectivity and that counterfeiters are people and groups that adapt easily, so we also have to adapt to be one step ahead.

    We have very close professional relations with the Attorney General, Civil Courts, Judicial Police and National Police, DIAN, INVIMA and other public entities, to jointly dismantle organizations dedicated to counterfeiting and piracy of all types of products, and throughout the Colombian territory.

  • We advise our clients integrally to establish a relationship with their clients and potential clients based on the respect of consumer protection laws.
