We are a global company specializing in Intellectual Property. We work for companies from all sectors, of which 18 are listed on the IBEX35, Spain's principal stock exchange index. With about 10,000 protected trademarks, we are also the leading firm in EU trademark and national, European and international patent registration.

Since 2018 PONS IP has been working on an ambitious digital transformation programme, that responds to the firm's corporate commitment to innovation and development of new services based on new technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain in areas related to the surveillance and defence of intangible assets.

Our expertise provides an added value to intangible assets management, improving our client’s competitiveness, access to the market and internationalization. In an increasingly agile and technological environment, we integrate the use of new technologies into legal practice to respond to the new challenges faced by organizations.

Based on that commitment, in 2020 we launched Safe Evidence, a pioneering tool in the use of blockchain technology, qualified time stamps and advanced electronic signature applied to the protection of intangible assets. In 2019, we incorporated a trademark technology surveillance service developed under machine learning and big data technology.

During 2021, we released a new trademark protection service, Alerta. Thanks to smart technologies, it offers a exhaustive trademark surveillance in four different areas: New trademark applications, counterfeits at customs offices worldwide, online counterfeits on search engines, social networks and marketplaces, and domain names.

We are the leading firm in national, European and international patent registration in Spain. In addition, we currently have the largest team of patent professionals in Spain. The team includes 20 technical profiles, more of 30% with Ph.D. and more than 30% are European Patent Agents.
