Intellectual Property

Ferraiuoli’s IP practice is trend setting, innovative and an integral part of what we do and who we areWe are the only Puerto Rico-based firm to have a dedicated, full-service IP department. Our clients run the gamut from innovative start-ups and local organizations to internationally recognized corporations. We have the experience and capability to provide guidance and integrated advice for the protection and exploitation of all areas of intellectual property, from a company’s first intangible asset to multinational, diverse portfolios.

We are the leading IP law firm in Puerto Rico with a top-notch practice that extends throughout the continental United States. We have also developed ties and partnerships with a global network of law firms, to ensure the protection of our client’s assets in every corner of the world.

Our innovative and cutting-edge focus in IP, and in technology-related matters, has no precedent in Puerto Rico.  Ferraiuoli was founded and is led by the vision of the first-ever Puerto Rican United States patent attorney to practice within Puerto Rico, Eugenio J. Torres-Oyola. Two of our partners are law school professors of Intellectual Property matters.  Our Annual IP Symposium is one-of-a-kind in Puerto Rico.

Our trademark team is second to none.  Our use of technology, competitive pricing, unparalleled response time and depth of bench allow us to provide services that no one else in Puerto Rico can.

With a diversified team of patent attorneys and professionals with backgrounds in a variety of specialties, spanning from electrical engineering and computer science through multiple disciplines of life sciences including chemical engineering, chemistry, biology, marine biology and neurobiology, we have the experience to provide our clients with the most equipped team of professionals for the job.

Not only does Ferraiuoli boast the largest patent litigation bench in Puerto Rico, but we also handle patent infringement litigations for our clients in Delaware, California, Texas and Puerto Rico. In fact, in 2014, we were named among the top patentee law firms in terms of the number of pending patent cases in District Courts across the United States.

Our clients reap the benefits of competitive pricing driven by the local market, while receiving the same high-quality work product, sophistication and credentials offered by national and international firms.
