Placement of OMC Abogados in ranking of applications for trademark registration in Peru

The consultant Punto IP published in late June, a ranking about the number of applications for trademark registration by Peruvian firms specialized in intellectual property. The classification showed as a result the placement of OMC Abogados & Consultores in 3rd place with a total of 156 trademarks.

Although this official information is based on published trademarks to the date in which the sample is requested, it allows to provide an average of trademark applications by firms, agents and people dedicated to the field of intellectual property.

Currently the number of trademark applications has increased, the greatest demand is in the fields of mass consumption items, food, technology, health and personal care.

The knowledge of IP laws in Peru as well as the cooperation agreements and labor exchange that we have been establishing with law firms in Asia, Europe and the United States allows foreign companies to receive appropriate advice on the matter.
