Welcome to Vilches y Asociados
Our work is based on three pillars: Skills, Closeness, Dynamism.
VILCHES & ASOCIADOS staff follows ongoing training to keep their knowledge up to date and thus face any change in regulations and technology, as well as the ever-changing needs of its clients. Our skilled experts offer proper advice according to each client’s requirements and field of specialization.
We listen to our clients to understand their needs, in the awareness that being close to clients is not a commercial instrument towards loyalty, but an element necessary to satisfy their needs and answer their requests appropriately.
When it comes to protecting Trademarks, Inventions or Designs, as well as when there is a conflict with an infringer, response time is crucial, and we have managed to implement work habits and procedures that allow us to provide answers expeditiously and even more so to react in the event of any adverse situation.
Our philosophy is focused on satisfying and meeting the expectations of each and every one of our clients, who have placed their trust in our firm. We offer them friendly, personalized service, aimed at identifying their needs so that we can comprehensively protect their industrial and intellectual property assets.
We work with a great team of multi-disciplinary professionals, allowing us to tackle our clients’ demands with maximum professionalism.
When advising our clients we are committed to avoiding conflicts with other trademark or patent rights holders. If, however, a conflict is unavoidable, we strive to obtain the best possible solution for our clients.
Among the actions that we undertake in defense of our clients’ rights we include an audit of their assets and needs, the registration of industrial and intellectual property in those markets that are genuinely important to their business, the professional management of their intangible assets portfolio and continuous surveillance of their business to anticipate new needs and respond to new threats.
With this in mind, we continuously update the legal and technological knowledge necessary to perform our work in the most effective manner possible. We have at our disposal the most efficient technology for managing files and performing technical and trademark searches.
We are absolutely committed to maintaining the confidentiality of our clients’ sensitive information, and thus we employ the utmost discretion in the cases we handle, contractually guaranteeing this confidentiality and the client’s right to professional secrecy.
Since its inception, VILCHES Y ASOCIADOS has specialized in developing and implementing strategies to obtain the international protection of its clients’ trademarks, patents and designs, providing them with the most beneficial solutions at the lowest costs.
Our firm directly represents our clients before the Spanish and Portuguese Patent and Trademark Offices, as well as before the European Union Intellectual Property Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization. In addition, we have a network of foreign agents covering 187 countries, formed by industrial property specialists that stand out for their experience, technical/legal specialization and professional reputation.
Our experience and network of associates allows us to operate throughout the world with full guarantees for our clients, offering a quick and agile response under any circumstances, such as, for example, to prevent plagiarism at an overseas trade fair, to eliminate web pages or links containing counterfeit products, to detect new applications that could come into conflict with our clients’ rights, or to prosecute counterfeit products both domestically and abroad.
Our professionals form a multi-disciplinary team which, since the year 2001, has handled the registration of all types of inventions (patents and utility models), corporate images (trademarks, trade names and domains), industrial designs and software (intellectual property registrations and patents) for industrial and service companies within different sectors and of varying sizes, both domestic and international in scope.
At Vilches y Asociados we employ the latest technological tools to access specialized sources of information and to control and monitor case files, allowing us to offer our clients the best service.
We have the capacity to provide our clients with technological information on patents and designs, as well as updated information on trademark registrations throughout the whole world, allowing us to provide them with a greater in-depth understanding of their competitors and of business opportunities within their markets.
Our team is formed by specialists with extensive experience and proven professionalism, enabling us to provide outstanding advice and to face challenges head-on anywhere in the world.
