Intellectual property is one of the foremost practices at full-service firm Mersán Abogados. An impressive client roster of household-name multinationals, as well as domestic companies, instruct the team across the full scope of matters. The broad categories of trade marks, patents and copyrights are all covered, with specific areas of expertise including advertising law and rights of vegetable varieties, and prosecuting the illegitimate re-transmission of copyright-protected work. Leadership of the department is divided between five lawyers: Lorena Mersán, promoted to partner in January 2021; senior partner Hugo Mersán, who has broad expertise across the practice area, with contentious matters and plant-breeder’s rights being particular fortes; and senior associates Melissa Stimson, Liliana Nolan and Maria de los Angeles Barrios.
