Maintenance and Renewals

 

A mark is protected for ten years from the date of registration, and it may be renewed indefinitely. A renewal application should be filed from six months before the expiration date or during the grace period of six months after is expiration.

 

We handle applications, recording of assignments, mergers, licenses, agreements, changes of name, changes of address, security interests, registry updates and renewals. 

 

We provide legal counseling for Intellectual Property transactions such as licensing, franchising, or distribution agreements. We also assist in the negotiation with the local parties, investigations, and recording agreements at the official registers.
