Our Practices

At SPECIFIC IP, we understand that Industrial Property is a set of rights held by a natural person or a juridical person over an invention (patent, utility model, topography of semiconductor products, complementary protection certificates for medicines or phytosanitary products), an industrial design, a distinctive symbol, trademark or trade name.

“It is a type of law through which the State acknowledges its holder’s (its owner’s) proprietorship over a technology (patent), product name (trademark) or a specific design (industrial model and drawing) and grants said holder the monopoly of its market exploitation, while requiring the fulfillment of a series of obligations (payment of fees, the exploitation of the invention, the usage of the trademark…) (Rights and obligations of the holders of Industrial Property rights)” Department of Patents and Technological Information.

At SPECIFIC IP we have expertise on the legal norms and principles that affirm the moral and patrimonial rights granted by Law to authors, for the sole fact of having created a literary, artistic, musical, scientific or didactic work, whether published or unpublished. It promotes respect for intellectual creation through the education, dissemination and enforcement of the legal principles in force based on it.

At SPECIFIC IP we represent our clients’ interests before governmental authorities in the three arenas: federal, state and municipal, as required.

Through litigation, we advise our clients from the stage of analysis and through the resolution of the matter at hand. We achieve this by means of proposals, concessions, authorizations, permits, licenses, fines and other sanctions, challenging acts from authorities which affect or infringe upon our clients’ rights. The high degree of specialization in the area of Intellectual Property ensures the defense of our clients’ interests.

SPECIFIC IP understands that technological advances are currently becoming increasingly complex, which creates the need to both register distinctive signs and to file patents to protect our clients and avoid litigation costs. It is often easy to describe inventions by means of drawings and through lengthy written explanations. Clear and accurate drawings provide support in patent applications, facilitating the understanding of the technology and its related claims.

Moreover, at SPECIFIC IP, we undertake the protection of our clients’ rights preventing, through legal procedures, the infringement of the Intellectual Property rights which have been granted to them.

At SPECIFIC IP we are aware of the importance of amparo proceedings for our clients; that these proceedings are a means of constitutional procedural defense of the Mexican legal system which have as their objective the defense, in this case, of the Intellectual Property and/or fundamental rights established in the constitution, as well as in the International Treaties in which Mexico is involved, when said rights are violated by general principles, acts of Authority or by individuals specified in the Law.
