“Arochi & Lindner, SC has been a leader in intellectual property law in Mexico since its inception in 1994. The firm, which has a particularly large trade marks department, is also strong in anti-counterfeiting and patents law and has special expertise in IP litigation. Moreover, in addition to the 35 lawyers in Mexico City, the firm has small offices in Madrid and Barcelona. In addition to the core competencies of trade marks, copyrights and patents, the firm covers franchising and licensing, marketplace issues such as counterfeit products, media law and data protection, biotechnology and plant varieties, technology-related IP law; contentious matters and enforcement. The team includes a number of key market figures, including head of patents Jorge Mier y Concha (‘very proficient in all IP aspects’), who recently represented BMW Mexico in connection with a claim that the client illegally used the ‘Dakar’ trade mark on some of its motorcycles; and managing partner and ‘very good lawyer’ Roberto Arochi, who provided extensive advice to Apple with regard to trade mark protection of its iPhone models. Also noted are ‘patents specialist and very good attorney’ Hedwig Lindner, and María Teresa Eljure, who is considered ‘a great litigator’, ‘trustworthy’ and ‘one in a million’.”

Each and every one of the lawyers of Arochi & Lindner is pleased to receive this distinction because it reflects the input of our clients. We will continue to honor the trust they have placed in us by demonstrating a deep understanding of their needs, their businesses and their industries, and by providing world-class responsive and innovative service.
