Trademarks, Designs and Domain Names

Trademarks

TAVARES offers the full range of trademark-related services ranging from national and multi-jurisdictional brand portfolio development, trademark clearance and prosecution through to enforcement, including trademark litigation both on a national and multi-national level.

As the fight against product piracy is gaining momentum, TAVARES offers a range of effective anti-counterfeiting measures. We also advise and support our clients in commercial transactions involving trademarks, in acquisitions as well as licensing, merchandising, franchising, joint venture and co-existence agreements.

Our trademark lawyers have extensive experience with the trademark offices as well as with all Brazilian courts handling trademark cases.

Besides providing registrability and availability opinion and preparing, filing and prosecuting trademark applications in Brazil, our team comprised of lawyers and trademark agents help clients maximize the value of their trademarks by properly protecting, defending and managing them abroad. Our team also participates in the drafting and negotiating of trademark license agreements and helps clients put in place broad licensing programs which can generate new revenue streams while building the strength of a trademark or of a trademark portfolio.

Among our clients are some of the world’s best known brand owners. These include a broad range of sectors, such as pharmaceuticals, consumer health care, perfumes and cosmetics, food and drink, hotel and restaurant services, financial services, IT, chemical plants, machinery, shoes and sporting articles.

For your firm, Tavares will have a designated one of our attorneys as Case Manager who is responsible for managing services across all matters and coordinating issue resolution of any request for each matter that arises from your firm to Tavares.

The Case Manager will be the primary day-to-day point of contact with your firm, and will participate in strategic and tactical decisions, as well as implement and manage the budget for each matter.

Industrial Design

The industries most affected by this development encompass manufacturers of toys, sports products, fashion and furniture – but in general, any industrial design may be worth protecting. The Brazilian law provides interesting and cost-effective legal instruments for the protection and enforcement of industrial design rights.

TAVARES represents and advises clients in design matters in the sectors of fashion and shoes, computers and consumer electronics including game consoles, and sporting goods. TAVARES also provides interesting and cost-effective legal instruments for the protection and enforcement of industrial design rights.
