Patent and trademark agents - Barcelona
ABG IP Catalonia
Catalonia is a region with a deep-rooted industrial and innovative trajectory.
Its scientific and creative traditions places the region as a force capable of fostering and attracting talent, as well as supporting a knowledge-based economy. The Catalonian productive fabric is also highly diversified; sectors such as life sciences, automotive, ICT, and energy, among others, showcase considerable activity with a significant impact on the region’s GDP.
Catalonia has a substantially higher awareness of the importance of industrial and intellectual property than the national average. Historically, it has been the leading region in European patent applications in Spain. It also plays an important role in the protection of intangible assets such as trademarks, industrial designs, trade secrets, copyright, and so on.
In 2007, we opened ABG Intellectual Property Catalonia, our Barcelona office, from which we serve multinational corporations, SMEs, technology / research centres, universities, and other catalonian institutions in Barcelona (Barcelona city, Bellaterra, Sant Cugat del Vallès, Mataró, Rub, etc.), Tarragona, Lleida, and Girona.
Intellectual property services in Catalonia
Our Barcelona office advises clients on the design, optimisation, and enforcement of industrial and intellectual property rights portfolios. We draft and prosecute patent applications before the European Patent Office (EPO), international patent applications before the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), the EPO, and the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (SPTO), as well as national patent applications before the OEPM and in other territories through our network of associates. We also offer multiple types of opinion work, such as patentability reports, infringement studies, and freedom to operate reports, among others.
We also assist Catalonian organisations in securing national and international protection for their trademarks, designs, and trade secrets.
