Manage your Intellectual Property in Latin America

If you wish to register a patent or a trademark in Chile or in MERCOSUR countries, is it necessary to do so through a legal representative or a local agent?

If you wish to register a patent or a trademark in Chile or in MERCOSUR countries, is it necessary to do so through a legal representative or a local agent?

There is no great restriction to apply for a patent or a trademark in Chile, since the application can be submitted by both a natural person and a legal entity. In the event that a non-resident wishes to apply for a patent or a trademark in Chile, a local address must be indicated. In case the person does not have any, he/she must appoint a legal representative or an attorney in Chile.

The requirements in MERCOSUR countries are similar to those in Chile, a local domicile in the country or a legal representative is needed.
