Intellectual Property: Trademarks, Patents and Related Services
Belize Intellectual Property & Trademark Law
Our firm has established and maintained a productive working relationship with the Belize Intellectual Property Office (BELIPO). We have also established and maintained valuable collaborative relationships with IP agents and IP attorneys across the globe, in part due to our uninterrupted longstanding memberships in the International Trademark Association (INTA) and Lex Mundi.
With our extensive background in IP practice, we are able to offer adequate and practical solutions to address our client’s concerns. Our preferred approach is principally to assist our clients with identifying and defining their specific IP needs and to focus our services to help them to meet those particular needs.
We manage the Belize aspect of IP portfolios for individuals and for corporate entities of varied domestic, international and multinational presence in a wide range of industries including pharmaceuticals, electronics, clothing, fragrance, hotels and food and beverages to name a few.
We review and advise on contracts concerning IP acquisitions, licensing, assignments, and related matters.
Our Firm is conversant with IP related disputes and challenges, and actively advises and represents clients in all forms of disputes before BELIPO and before the Supreme Court of Belize, including opposition, revocation, invalidity, infringement and passing off claims. We also assist clients with anti-counterfeit measures to protect their trademark by working closely with law enforcement and Customs authorities.
