Senior in-house contacts at top companies have nothing but good things to say about Sargent & Krahn, a longstanding IP leader in Chile which continues to distinguish itself as a high-volume, high-standard trademark filer and a miracle worker in contentious scenarios. “The firm’s lawyers have deep knowledge of local laws and practices in Chile but, more importantly, provide very practical recommendations which are mindful of your ultimate goal and budget concerns. They are extremely responsive and proactive, and they keep you updated on the status of your matters in a timely fashion.” Forming a tailor-made team for prestigious clients, Alfredo Montaner, Eduardo Lobos, Cristián Barros and Juan Pablo Egaña understand the finer points of brand strategy and align themselves as key legal and commercial partners to rights holders. Montaner has a gift for thinking outside the box and stands out for his international and particularly EU trademark expertise. He co-chairs the trademark and domain name practice alongside Lobos, a “thoughtful, pragmatic, timely and invaluable adviser” with an affinity for complex contentious matters. Newly ranked in the WTR 1000 for 2022, Barros secured a deserved promotion to partner in January 2021 in recognition of his superb portfolio management capabilities. Egaña is a veteran IP all-rounder with a special aptitude for licensing.
