THE FIRM This well-reputed firm has a long-standing presence in the Chilean corporate arena, and regularly advises high-profile clients on cross-border M&A deals, joint ventures and financing and debt restructuring mandates. The team recently assisted media company Metro International with its acquisition of 26% of the shares of online coupon company Cuponatic.
KEY INDIVIDUALS Felipe Cousiño is a key partner at the practice and recently led a team advising Värde Partners on its USD25 million acquisition of FirstCity Financial.
THE FIRM The trade marks practice at this Chilean heavyweight represents a variety of local and international clients in connection with their IP needs. The team handles an increasing workload from Chilean clients in the fruit and wine industries who are seeking to protect their brands abroad. The department has also seen a surge in patents prosecution and litigation, prompting the firm to hire three patent attorneys to assist in this regard. The team recently acted for Lacoste in the investigation and destruction of counterfeit products, and has participated in a number of further anti-piracy cases of late.
Sources say: “They are efficient and responsive, and have strong legal acumen. They never fail to meet our expectations.”

Sources highlight Felipe Schuster as a sound academic and intelligent lawyer. He works on the firm’s media and entertainment cases.
Department head Rodrigo Velasco S served as lead counsel to Lacoste in a recent case of counterfeit goods and has been appointed the ICC’s regional ambassador for IP in Chile. He is singled out by clients as being “prompt in responding and diligent in understanding our approach to trade mark protection.”
Rodrigo Velasco A has a particular niche in music and technology and impresses clients with his capacity to understand their needs in light of the evolving digital environment.
The firm also benefits from the historic participation of founding partner Arturo Alessandri Besa in the Chilean IP sector.
