With a long track record in IP matters, Lexincorp continues to handle a considerable number of trade mark applications and also handles patent matters and industrial designs. Among other work, the team manages the IP portfolio of Laprin (one of the biggest laboratories in the region); oversees Turner Broadcasting System’s entire regional brand portfolio; and recently requested the cancellation of the trade mark Electrolit (due to lack of usage), on behalf of Laboratorios Pisa. The team is also advising new client and family company Dawn Foods in opposition proceedings against the registration of the brand "Rich Crème" by Mexican company Harinera La Espiga; and Lee Jeong Gab Auction System and Method regarding the registration of a patent (the company is currently in litigation concerning the patentability of the technology and processes). Head of IP litigation, Ovidio Parra, is also litigating to overturn the rejection of a patent filing by Les Laboratoires Servier regarding an Agomelatine anxiety medication. The practice is led by the well regarded Gonzalo Menendez Gonzalez; and Gonzalo Menendez Park, who has particular expertise advising regional companies – particularly those in the pharmaceutical and financial fields, is also highlighted. Other clients include Televisa and Thomson Reuters; due to strong ties with Asian firms, the practice also receives referrals from firm such as Chinese IP boutique CCPIT Patent & Trademark Law Office.
