Trademarks and intellectual property are not only ways of identifying products and companies, they also provide many creative ways of obtaining further revenues. The most valuable assets of the companies are becoming ever-increasingly intangible. This is why at Vilá Abogados we put special emphasis upon the protection of intangible assets, including, among others services, the negotiation and drafting of contracts concerning:

- Trademark, patent, technology and know-how transfer and licensing.

- Software development, e-commerce and marketing. 

- Image rights, exploitation of copyright, merchandising and sponsorship. 

Furthermore, our experience in this field enables us to assume the legal defense of our clients in cases of infringement of industrial and intellectual property rights, breach of contract, unfair competition, and parallel imports, amongst others.
