BLP‘s ‘excellent‘ team has an impressive client roster of major multinationals from the technology (including fintech) and pharmaceutical sectors, among others. In addition to advising on trade mark prosecution and protection, the team has expertise in patents, copyright, advertising and consumer protection issues, and health registrations, and the regional firm regularly assists with the management of clients’ IP portfolios across Guatemala and Central America. Anti-counterfeiting actions, judicial and administrative IP litigation, and advice on the IP aspects of high-value M&A transactions are all additional areas of strength. The team is led by Luis Ruiz, who co-heads the firm’s region-wide IP practice, and director Pamela López, who has extensive experience in the management of IP portfolios, and has been particularly active recently in advising disruptive technology companies. The arrival of associate Marleni García from an in-house role at Cemar in November 2020 further boosted the team’s strength in this area. Since publication, López has been promoted to partner – effective as of March 2022.
