Intellectual Property

Our team provides a comprehensive range of intellectual property services covering trade marks, patents, industrial designs, and copyright. We act as trademark and patent agents and represent clients in non-contentious and contentious matters. This includes due diligence, registration, renewal, assignment, enforcement, and litigation to protect our clients’ rights. We have successfully argued against objections raised in applications filed for registrations before the Belize Intellectual Property Office (BELIPO), and appeals therefrom to the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal, have handled all aspects of opposition proceedings, and have been involved in legal claims involving trademark infringement and passing off. Members of our team have undergone extensive training in this area of the law and have used that expertise to efficiently and aggressively protect our clients’ rights and interests.

We also assist clients in efficiently fighting the counterfeit trade and work closely with law enforcement and Customs authorities in countering the illegal importation of counterfeit goods. We provide sound legal advice on the registration, protection and enforcement of all aspects of the Belize trademark law and intellectual property in Belize.
