Our mission is to provide innovative solutions and highly specialized legal advice for clients facing the most complicated legal and business challenges in Mexico.

OLIVARES is continuously at the forefront of new practice areas concerning copyright, litigation, regulatory, anti-counterfeiting, plant varieties, domain names, digital rights, and internet-related matters, and the firm has been responsible for precedent-setting decisions in patents, copyrights, and trademarks.

Our firm is committed to developing the strongest group of legal professionals to manage the level of complexity and interdisciplinary orientation that clients require. During the first decade of the 21st century, the team successfully led efforts to reshape IP laws and change regulatory authorizations procedures in Mexico, not only through thought leadership and lobbying efforts, but the firm has also won several landmark and precedent-setting cases at the Mexican Federal and Supreme Courts levels, including in constitutional matters.

Today, the team at OLIVARES includes 9 partners and more than 45 associates working across intellectual property, regulatory, administrative, civil, and commercial and corporate law, serving many different industries, and is constantly awarded for excellence in legal service.

We aim to utilize every available resource to help clients achieve  optimum results, protecting their business interests, intellectual property and other rights at every level and through the applicable administrative or judicial venue, in order to maximize successful outcomes - all while maintaining an overarching goal of contributing to Mexico’s broader stance in the global economy and for the greater good of the Mexican people.

Our vision is to shape the legal environment that opens Mexico to the greatest innovations the world has to offer by:

•Providing exceptional legal services that result in client growth and business success.
•Creating an atmosphere where lawyers, technical experts and staff, work together on solutions that lead to brilliant achievements.
