Our team counts attorneys practicing in the field of technology, media and internet law. We provide e-commerce counseling, including reviewing website terms of use, privacy agreements, licensing agreements, and transactions.

Domain Names

We handle domain name disputes as well as prosecution of illegal metatags, ad-words, and the like bearing third party trademarks.

Ecuadorian Domain Name Registrations

Our clients can secure a domain name registration and control the national domain name when they open local branches or name local distributors. We ensure that the domain name stays with the legitimate owner and is not otherwise hijacked when the local distributor is changed or any other eventuality occurs.

Any person, local or foreigner may apply for a .ec domain name.

Social Media Protection

We assist both in launching social media campaigns as well as in taking down social media accounts that infringe a client’s trademarks or copyrights.

Distribution Agreements, Franchising, Licensing

Part of our core business is advising on the different ways of developing Intellectual Property assets in Ecuador. We handle litigation and general advice for drafting these sorts of agreements and negotiation with local parties. Our services include reviewing Master Franchises or License Agreements to make sure they are fully executable and binding in the country. Proper advice on these aspects helped our clients to avoid litigation against their representatives in our country. We are capable of conducting due diligence, obtain background information from parties, developing strategies to enter the market, manage IP Portfolios, software licensing, and technology transfers.

There are several alternatives for a foreign company to enter the Ecuadorian market. Depending on the risk allocation, our clients can participate indirectly through licensees, franchisees, distributorships or authorized dealers, or directly by establishing a branch, opening a subsidiary or buying a local company (see Corporate Practice). Our Firm is fully prepared to assist in all matters in relation to doing business in Ecuador.
