Sofía Arroyo’s work in OLIVARES focuses on the Trademark practice, particularly relating to two areas: prosecution and litigation. In connection with trademark prosecution, her work covers all related aspects ranging from the availability searches and the follow-up of the whole trademark prosecution process from filing to registration. As for trademark litigation, her work covers both administrative litigation derived from the conflicts arising during the trademark prosecution, as well as the litigation before our judicial authorities covering both the Federal Court of Tax and Administrative Matters and the Federal Circuit Courts (Amparo Trials). These judicial litigations arise from appeals to the resolutions of administrative litigations and registration refusals issued by the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property.
She also provides general advice in all aspects relating to obtaining and maintaining trademark rights in Mexico.
