UNGRIA is a European firm specialized in Intellectual Property, founded in 1891. With over 130 years of experience in the IP field, both nationally and internationally, UNGRIA increases its global presence to Latin America by opening three own offices in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.

In order to provide our clients with a professional advice that guarantees a solid protection of their rights, we have incorporated a legal and technical team with an extensive career in IP to directly represent them before the local Offices and Institutions.

The LATAM team is supported by more than 160 professionals (European Patent Attorneys, European Trademark and Design Attorneys, Spanish IP Agents, Trademark Attorneys, Attorneys at Law, Chemists, Engineers and a team of multilingual paralegals) with a proven expertise in all areas of Intellectual Property and deeply familiarized with all jurisdictions in the Latin American region.

The combination of both, local experts and our teams in Europe and the USA, allows us to manage files efficiently while providing a global legal advice according to our quality standards. In addition, by centralizing all the communications in one office (Madrid or New Jersey), we manage to reduce the administrative burden and build synergies between all countries.

Our experience in the IP field is demonstrated by the filing, prosecution and defense of more than 500,000 trademarks and 120,000 patents worldwide and the current number (+250,000) of active files.


UNGRIA counts with decades of experience protecting IP rights in all Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries, as well as coordinating and providing legal advice in the entire Latin American region.

In Argentina, Brazil and Mexico we act directly with our legal and technical team, qualified to represent our clients before the respective Patent and Trademark Offices. In the rest of the Latin American countries, we work with reliable and specialized local IP counsel with whom UNGRIA has been collaborating for many years.

The UNGRIA LATAM team, together with our experts in the offices of Europe and USA, bring an extensive knowledge in all jurisdictions of the region. This structure, allows us to efficiently act in all fields of technology.
