With 130 years history and a team of more than 120 professionals and technicians, Sargent & Krahn is the largest firm offering legal advisory services in Intellectual Property in Chile.

We represent local and foreign clients in the registration, commercial exploitation and protection of trademarks, patents, copyrights, domain names, plant varieties, among other IP rights. Sargent & Krahn prosecutes and watches the highest volume of trademarks in Chile and runs its own updated database of trademarks. Our practice extends also to technology, privacy and media, life sciences and regulatory issues concerning food, health and agriculture.

Our patent practice has a special focus in the pharmaceutical industry and is also connected with life sciences matters and regulatory issues concerning proprietary information and undisclosed data dealing with health and agriculture.

Our practice in technology and privacy has grown dramatically over the years and we have a specialized team that provides advice in negotiation of IT services and licenses and compliance. Last year, we have teamed up with Cognitiva, an IBM partner, at the forefront of developing solutions using artificial intelligence in Spanish, primarily using Watson technology.

We have a team of litigators specialized in IP, unfair competition, advertisement, right of publicity and anti-counterfeiting.

Our capacity of developing in-house products that differentiate us from our competitors and facilitates the contact with our clients is also a reflection of the visionary spirit of Sargent & Krahn. In 1991, we published Weekmark, which today is a computer platform that provides online free access to our clients to check the status of their trademarks, as well as conduct searches of trademarks.
