Silver - Firms: enforcement and litigation

Gold - Firms: prosecution and strategy

Over the last 60 years, boutique CIKATO Lawyers has earned itself a stellar reputation for its staunch protection of intangible assets from trademarks, copyright and domain names to industrial designs and patents. While noted for its adroit portfolio management and precision filing capabilities, the firm also maintains a highly active contentious practice headed by Mauro Marin, a polished civil and criminal litigator who masterminded the leading cybersquatting case in Uruguay. Overseeing the prosecution division, Diego Chijane and Matias Cikato secure cast-iron protection for myriad brands, both national and multinational. Prominent scholar Chijane has unique insight from a previous role at the Uruguayan trademark office which helps to overcome all registration and filing obstacles. Cikato brings a distinctly international perspective to the mix thanks to a stint working in-house in Switzerland; he always seeks ways to gain commercial advantages for clients.
