Uhthoff Gomez Vega & Uhthoff's origins date back to 1905 when the firm was first established as an IP firm. Since then, the firm has expanded into corporate law and has added a second office to its Mexico City headquarters in Guadalajara. Its team of 67 IP lawyers and patent/trade mark attorneys represent such companies as 3M, Colgate-Palmolive, F Hoffmann-La Roche and Merck.
Uhthoff is well-known and well-established in Mexico's IP market. Clients who have chosen to work with the firm say that it has been a very good experience. "They have always been very responsive to our needs and concerns and have provided valuable legal advice in Mexico," says one client, who regularly consults patents group leader Javier Uhthoff Orive and Eugenio Perez, also a partner of the firm's patent group.
