Registering trademarks in Brazil for over twenty years.

We began our company in 2001, concentrating on Intellectual Property and supporting new businesses and entrepreneurs. Our main goal has always been to offer practical services to our clients around the world. This focus became even more relevant as Brazil's role in international trade grew, especially with the rise of BRICS. BRICS is composed of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. There are plans to expand with new members during the coming years.

Brazil is an appealing market due to its large consumer base and openness to new technologies, creating unique opportunities for smaller companies. The country is increasingly interested in both imported goods and new manufacturing technologies.

Our role is to provide efficient, no-nonsense help to businesses aiming to enter the Brazilian market. With over 20 years of experience, particularly in trademark registration and the administration of our clients' IP portfolios in Brazil, we are known for our careful and efficient approach. We ensure our clients are kept well-informed about their applications and strive to make their entry into the Brazilian market as smooth as possible.

We believe in the importance of understanding Brazil's language, regulations, and cultural specifics, which are key to succeeding in this market. Our team is familiar with the business landscapes both globally and in Brazil, helping our clients bridge any gaps. We're not about grand claims; we're about getting the job done right and with care.
