Rodrigo formally joined our firm in 2005. He obtained his LLM in Boston University and is also admitted to practice in the State of New York. Before re-joining us in 2010, he worked at a top tier law firm in Washington, DC.

His main practice is trademark prosecution in Ecuador and Latin America. He handles IP matters such as trademark clearance, trademark applications and TM oppositions in all Latin America. He overviews and organizes regional trademark portfolios and handles regional litigation or oppositions.

In Ecuador, Rodrigo handles oppositions and trademark litigation and clients seek him for complex matters that require thorough and creative strategies.

Rodrigo also assists our clients in the commercial aspects of licensing or franchising, reviews international contracts for Ecuadorian law compliance, and counsels in matters relating taxation, and tax planning.
