Leaders League analysis
CorralRosales is a full-service leading firm in Ecuador with over 40 years of experience advising national and international clients in a broad range of matters. In the Intellectual Property field, we have built one of the most successful trademark and patent prosecution and enforcement practices in Latin America. In fact, we are the number one patent and trademark filer in Ecuador.
Maria Cecilia Romoleroux and Francisco Gallegos co-head the IP department, both offering decades of experience in this area. Their passion and knowledge in all matters related to IP are exemplified in the relentless commitment to our clients and the industry at large.
We regularly advise Ecuadorian firms and multinationals of all sizes to provide them with comprehensive portfolio management, strategies and solutions to all of their intellectual property challenges in Ecuador and throughout Latin America.
Moreover, CorralRosales is committed to anti-counterfeiting and takes extra measures to monitor and enforce exclusive trade-mark and patent rights, even going so far as to create robust anti-counterfeiting plans customized for our clients.
We have the largest and most comprehensive regulatory practice in Ecuador, led by partner Felipe Samaniego. The regulatory group advises clients not only in legal matters but in the technical aspects as well, with a team of in-house technicians to meet all our clients’ needs. We are able to deftly navigate through the bureaucracy necessary to actually operate, advertise, market and sell in Ecuador, which can at times be very complex. Our regulatory practice works hand in hand with our IP department making certain that all requirements are met and communicated timely.
The firm, with Xavier Rosales as head, also offers expertise in the Media & Entertainment fields. Ana Samudio is an experienced Associate at the department. This industry is of great importance for CorralRosales, which is why we offer knowledgeable advice on securing permits and authorizations before the relevant entities. CorralRosales also represents clients in administrative procedures, relationship and regulatory management, and contract negotiation.
Data protection is another key area at the firm, led by Senior Associate Rafael Serrano. The firm has advised national and international companies on the effects of implementing national and international data protection legislation and is continuously training clients regarding the application of data protection laws. CorralRosales is at the forefront of this area in Ecuador, which is still quite new.
The key to our firm’s achievements stem from our ability to promptly deliver the highest quality results that clients can depend on. We do it with guaranteed response times, accuracy and precision.
