European Union

Being Portugal a member of the European Union we are qualified to act before the EPO - European Patent Office - European Patents. We are also qualified to act before the EUIPO - European Union Intellectual Property Office – Trade Marks and Designs.

Our office accompanied with great interest the moves to harmonize European legislation on Industrial Property and the drawing up of new legal frameworks, first in the European Economic Community and then in the European Union.

As a result all our Attorneys are recognized as Official European Agents by the EUIPO in Alicante (European Union Trademarks and Community Designs or Models), and two are also recognized by the European Patent Office in Munich (European Patent).

Naturally the Dias Costa Office employs a multidisciplinary team of professionals, duly certified as Agents by the appropriate European Union institutions.
