We were established in 1969 as a boutique firm business that offered advisory services in patent matter to companies from the transformation industry sector, such as the pharmaceutical industry, the chemical industry and the electrical industry, among others, with the purpose of giving them support to protect their intellectual capital as well as to assist them in licensing their technology. Since then, we have been groundbreakers and innovators in the form, substance and quality of our services in industrial property matter, copyrights and technology licensing.
During this journey, innovation as a constant in BC&B, has taken us through a series of technological and organizational transformations that have positively changed the way we offer our services. These factors, together with our acknowledged quality and customer service today has positioned us in Mexico and in foreign countries as a leading boutique firm specialized in intellectual property, offering not only the traditional IP services, but also creating and developing unique and differentiated services that result from the vision, ability and expertise of our IP specialists, in order to take care of the most complex needs that our clients face. That is how we have achieved recognition in patent and trademark prosecution, patent and trademark litigation, patent and trademark strategy, licensing and business management on a sustained basis for several years now. Furthermore, our partners and associates have been recognized in a sustained basis as recommended experts in their area of practice and are globally identified as a benchmark in Intellectual Property.
Through the years, we have preserved and evolved our strengths, looking to generate novel ways of increasing our scope of solutions, developing the ability, the infrastructure, and our competency to create them. That is how we achieved on shaping the BC&B Technology Transference Office, created to support entrepreneurs, startups and companies to create and implement business strategies that generate economic benefits through their intangible assets, giving then momentum to innovation and protecting their IP rights with our philosophy of integrally taking care of the creations and technological developments of entrepreneurs and business owners.
