Other Services

We carry out searches in national, international, community and foreign databases in order to assess the chances of success of a new application for registration and report on its viability based on the results obtained.
For this purpose, we research internal and external databases, national and foreign.

We conduct watches of industrial property rights in Portugal and abroad. This daily monitoring system allows to detect and inform our Clients of new applications for IP rights, which, after analysis, may conflict with earlier rights.

Our large team of technical translators, internal and external, is specialised in the most relevant areas, in particular, in the patent field.

The communication of a trademark registration to the National Register of Legal Persons (RNPC) is highly recommended, because it prevents that new company names include identical or very similar expressions to the earlier mark, for the same area of activity.

We carry out the registration of works with the General Inspection of Cultural Activities in order to facilitate the determination of the date of creation of the work, authorship and ownership, accompanied by the necessary legal support.

We apply for customs intervention before the Tax and Customs Authority for the protection of rights and act together with the authorities in anti-counterfeiting fight, providing all the legal support necessary for the seizure and destruction of counterfeit goods.
