Antitrust and unfair competition
We provide comprehensive legal- and business-oriented strategies and advice for dealing with issues where there is an overlap between intellectual property law and the legal regulations of antitrust, or unfair competition and similar challenges.
These issues range from the very common advice on potential legal risks of license agreements from an antitrust standpoint to dealing with possible violations of that government when enforcing IP rights including trademarks, patents, industrial designs, among others, which are still rarely seen but growing in this region.
It is worth considering that while most Latin American countries have implemented regulations against unfair competition, there are still many governments that have not legislated on antitrust. Therefore, the level and importance of the interplay mentioned above varies greatly in this region.
