Our History

Dr. Vicente Bermeo Lañas started the
“Law Offices of Dr. Vicente Bermeo“

In Quito, Ecuador. A visionary man who established what would become one of the most important Intellectual Property practices in Ecuador. The firm was chosen by many international companies and law firms throughout the years. Nowadays, we are proud to continue representing a large number of them.

A New Approach

In 1978, when Dr. Vicente was appointed Justice of the Supreme Court, Dr. Rodrigo Bermeo Rosales joined the practice and adopted the name “Bermeo & Bermeo.” The new partners were confident that this name would last through the upcoming generations. Rodrigo brought a new approach focusing on strengthening client relationships and building a new client base. The firm quickly became well known internationally and developed to be one of the leading IP practices in Latin America.

The 90’s and 2000’s were years of expansion. Bermeo & Bermeo took control over Ecuador’s oldest Intellectual Property portfolio when the firm acquired “Sucesores de Aurelio Vallejo” which was established in 1900. Later on, the firm absorbed “International Patents & Trademarks.” Bermeo & Bermeo now manages a high percentage of Intellectual Property rights in Ecuador and is in charge of the regional filings of several national and international companies.

Today, Bermeo & Bermeo Is The Most Efficient Law Firm In The Country

With Rodrigo V. Bermeo-Andrade, and Pablo Bermeo-Andrade, the third generation has joined the firm. Together, they contribute with strong education and valuable experience acquired while working abroad in top tier law firms of the United States and Argentina. Both are admitted attorneys in the State of New York.

Today, Bermeo & Bermeo is the most efficient law firm in the country. With the help of the latest technology we manage a very large client base with a team of high qualified people. We are proud to have been able to maintain our high standards from the inception of the firm and that our clients believe in our value propositions. The firm is stronger than ever, and rest assured our quality services will continue towards the future.

Pro Bono Work

The firm is committed to providing
pro bono services related to our practice.

The firm is committed to providing pro bono services related to our practice. Our goal is to give access to the legal system to people who could not otherwise afford it, or to provide Intellectual Property protection to startups that can pay it forward to another one in need once their businesses are up-and-coming. Some examples are:

Mundo de

Is a small elementary school located in Cuenca, Ecuador. We provided legal assistance as well as protection of their trademarks.


We have provided assistance to companies starting in the industry of salad dressings and BBQ sauces made with farm ingredients. The firm has also assisted a startup company from a low income group venturing in the fast food industry.

Collections, labor

The firm sponsores collections, settlements or labor complaints to low-income people, which the cost of the legal services would otherwise exceed the amount of the collections.

At Bermeo & Bermeo, we protect intellectual property and are also committed to protecting the environment. We sponsor the preservation of more than 400 hectares (1000 acres) of primary forests, and promote responsible and sustainable forestry and agricultural practices.

Planting trees is our way to offset carbon emissions and reduce our organization’s carbon footprint. Bermeo has planted and cultivated over 200,000 trees, including the reintroduction of native species. Andean varieties such as Pumamaquis (Oreopanax ecuadorensis), Alisos or Alder (Alnus glutinosa), Acacias (acacia dealbata), Cholanes (Tecoma Stans), Arupo (Chionanthus pubescens) and Yagual (Polylepis) are crucial to the ecosystem as they are vital food sources for wildlife, have medicinal properties for local communities, enhance soil fertility, and stimulate water sources.

This protected ecosystem is also the source of drinking water to the indigenous communities in the area. Our green initiatives include pro-bono work for the procurement, protection, and sustainable management of water resources.

Since 2001, Bermeo implemented a paperless initiative. In line with this green initiative, we embraced digital solutions that support printless processes and paperless e-files, which have evolved to cloud-based document storage systems, electronic signatures, and online collaboration tools.

By eliminating paper wherever possible, and transitioning to digital processes in filing, invoicing, and general client communications, as well as internal practices, we reduced our paper trail by 93% over these past years.

We are already working paperless with some of our clients and invite you to join us in this environmentally friendly project.
