About us

B&R Latina was formed in 2007 as one entrepreneur’s response to several clearly identified gaps in the services being offered by traditional Latin American IP firms. While most firms have become experts in their particular countries, international companies often view Latin America from a regional perspective and require coverage in several major jurisdictions at once. As an established Colombian firm serving multinational companies since 1999, we spent 10 years developing key relationships with IP experts across Latin America. When we opened our US business in 2011, we began expanding those relationships until we are now able to offer one-stop-shopping for IP protection in the region.We have negotiated prices that are well below the average because we provide our local contacts with consistent work, allowing us to charge an average fee of just USD 500 for trademark registration in all countries. Our model streamlines the process for clients, allowing one point of contact and fewer updates. We utilize online software to manage cases and are constantly introducing new features to further simplify the process. Most of our clients use B&R Latina on a regional basis to handle their work across Latin America.

Patent Specialists

When it comes to patents, we are especially unique. Many Latin American firms do not have patent specialists, as patent protection in most regions is weak and it is expensive to hire the few qualified individuals. As a result, lawyers do primarily trademark work, taking on patent work as necessary. This makes it difficult for them to become intimately familiar with the patent process. At B&R Latina, we have a regional patent specialist team for Latin America, and our team has had stellar results.

Our Local Agents

Our local agents are comprised chiefly of former in-house IP counsel, former directors or officers at local patent and trademark offices, and lawyers who have left large firms to open smaller practices. Most have at least ten years of experience in IP and are members of major patent and trademark associations, such as INTA and AIPLA. This arrangement also allows for an additional layer of quality control—we check our local attorneys’ work online after they have prepared and checked it themselves. This ensures fewer mistakes and, ultimately, the ability to obtain rights faster.
