The Decree 27/2018 of January 10, 2018, (here in after the “Decree”) amends certain articles of the current Law of Trademarks and Designations (Law No. 22,362), the Law of Patents and Utility Models (Law No. 24,481), and Decree-Law No. 6673/1963.
The recitals of the “Decree”, indicate the need to implement an administrative procedure for the parties, prior to the judicial instance, for the administrative procedure and resolution of the oppositions in trademarks, in order to reduce deadlines in obtaining resolutions. In connection with Utility Models and Designs, with the proposed amendments, users may make multiple applications for registration per file, adopt new technologies in the manner of submitting drawings, and request the postponement of publications.
O’C & P ranked once again as a World Leading Trademark Professional firm in Argentina, 2018.
“Sources are quick to shine the spotlight on “a great new firm in Argentina” in the form of O’Conor & Power, a compact boutique with a particular affinity for trademarks. It secures the endorsement of a wide swathe of foreign associates, thanks to its “high-quality work, responsiveness and cost-benefit ratio”. Commentators observe that under the watch of founding partner Santiago O’Conor, the group “practises with a lot of energy” – this is something they like to see, given that many suggest that “a lot of firms in Argentina and the region have rested on their laurels”. “Cracking lawyer” O’Conor has “got a really good team around him – and he’s built it so quickly”. “He is much more responsive and resourceful than others.”
