Intellectual property Tier 2

Boutique firm MMonivation handles intellectual property matters across Central America, the Caribbean and beyond. The team spearheaded by Ana Catalina Monge advises on trade marks, patents, copyright and sanitary registrations, and has a particular skill set in the innovative area of non-traditional marks such as scents, sounds and flavours. Together with Andrés Hernandez and the 'diligent and organised' Carlos Monge Rodriguez, Monge acts for clients from the cosmetics, food and pharmaceutical industries, in particular pharmaceutical laboratories. Hernandez takes the lead on the management of domestic trade mark portfolios and Monge Rodriguez focuses on health registrations.
