My professional career has been focused on Intellectual Property. During the last 13 years I have been responsible for leading the Intellectual Property Department of MHOV Abogados with special attention on our international clients.

One of my main responsibilities has been strategic planning for the defense of intangible assets for international companies. I have been conducting actions to seizing counterfeit products, executing legal actions to restore their trademark rights, defending their brands in social media, taking down accounts and illegal platforms, among other kind of legal actions.

I have also been very active with startups, advising entrepreneurs in regard to protecting their assets, drafting confidentiality agreements, drafting shareholder agreements, and transfer of IP rights. In addition to my professional career, I have been on the Board of Directors for Inter-American Association of Intellectual Property (ASIPI) for the past 5 years, and I am currently the Secretary.
