Uhthoff´s enforcement and litigation practice has been recognized as one of the most successful and respected in México, as our long-time position as a leader in general and complex IP litigation cases has an impressive winning record.
Our team is comprised of skilled lawyers and litigation experts with a winning culture, whose mission is to proactively advise and actively participate in all legal actions that vigorously fight piracy, protect and enforce the intellectual property rights of our clients, through the procedures and legal instruments best suited for their interests.
Uhthoff currently provides a wide array of services concerning the enforcement and protection of our clients’ IP rights by providing tailor-made counseling to prevent future troubles and legal risks or, if they come to happen, developing comprehensive legal strategies -including anti-counterfeiting actions- to solve them, taking into account real facts, the specific needs of each client and the Mexican Law.
We develop and handle all available legal actions regarding the enforcement of IP rights, which include administrative actions filed before the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI); criminal actions that are initiated by the General Prosecutor’s Office (PGR); administrative trial proceedings before the Federal Tribunal of Administrative Affairs (TFJA); judicial cases filed before the Civil Courts; and several recourses and extraordinary judicial remedies filed before Federal District and Circuit Courts, including “amparo” trial proceedings.
Furthermore, we have extensive experience in handling civil, commercial and criminal matters regarding IP and IP enforcement actions, with added expertise in customs law and international trade issues; also, we have a close relationship and sustain collaboration efforts with different government agencies involved in the enforcement and protection of IP rights, mainly with the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI), the National Institute of Copyrights (INDAUTOR) and the General Prosecutor’s Office (PGR), as well as other institutions that support and work together with them, such as AGA, the Federal Commission for the Prevention of Sanitary Risks (COFEPRIS) and the Federal Police (PF).
