General notions

The trademark registration procedure lasts approximately two months, counted from the date the registration application is submitted to the country's trademark office. If there are no oppositions to the request by third parties, a certificate or property title will be granted for a period of ten years, and said registration must be renewed within the legal term: six months before the expiration date, or within the six months of the grace period, then the trademark expires.
The owner of a trademark has the obligation to use it, otherwise it may be subject to cancellation by third parties who have an interest in using said trademark or a trademark similar to it. For this reason, it is important that once the trademark is registered and after the first two years of its registration, a specialized lawyer is contacted so that he/she can advise the owner of the trademark on the best way to use it or to collect the necessary evidence to prove its use.

What it covers:

Our services range from the registration and renewal of trademarks, transfers and coexistence agreements. Likewise, we provide advice to file and defend against claims for trademark infringement, nullity and cancellation of trademarks, oppositions against applications for third-party trademarks that may be the same or similar, as well as the defense against said oppositions.

Our Patent Regime grants three types of protection to inventions:

Protection as: Validity

A) Invention Patent 20 years

The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) offers assistance to applicants seeking international patent protection for their inventions and assists offices in decisions on the granting of patents, as well as making extensive technical information regarding inventions available to the public.

Since 2009, Peru has been an integral part of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).
