Mr. Sanchez’s work is extensive, with experience in prosecution and litigation across all areas of IP, including trademarks, copyrights, patents and unfair competition. His broad background allows him to tailor enforcement strategies to a range of needs. His practice is focused in litigation and regulatory matters, with a specialization in life sciences and technology. Mr. Sanchez co-chairs Olivares’ Litigation Team, the Patent Team and the IT industry group. His team is focused on litigation before the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) and the Federal Courts and in patent prosecution before IMPI. As one of the few regulatory and administrative litigation experts in Mexico, Mr. Sanchez guided the development and implementation of a revolutionary and proprietary software system that replicates the drug naming and labelling approval process within COFEPRIS, Mexico’s health ministry.
