Dispute resolution

Mexico City’s highly specialized intellectual property boutique firm Dumont is a massive presence in the Mexican legal market despite its relatively small size. The firm prides itself on its legal team’s ability to consistently attend to client needs in any aspect of IP, in addition to representing clients in trademark, copyright, patent and unfair competition disputes. The firm’s client portfolio includes a wealth of leading corporations on both the local and global level, large economic players in the US, European, and Asian markets, as well as multiple Fortune 500 companies. Central to the firm’s success since its founding in 1940 is a constant emphasis on specialization at every level. In this vein, the firm’s team of practitioners provide a crucial and thorough understanding of client inventions in order to guarantee the highest possible caliber of counsel during IP dispute proceedings. The legal team has developed particularly potent levels of knowledge in the chemical, pharmaceutical, electronics and electrical, mechanic, biotech, and IT sectors.

With over 30 years of experience in intellectual property, managing partner and expert litigator Laura Collada is among the firm’s most vital of assets, as she regularly leads or co-leads the firm’s most complex of disputes. Partner Israel Escobedo, who serves as the firm’s head of litigation, is also integral to its highly successful framework. The two recently collaborated in defending Mexican electrical company Simón Eléctrica in the challenging-through-invalidation actions of one of its industrial design registrations for novel streetlighting following the winning of an infringement action. In the final decision, Mexico’s Federal Circuit Court issued a favorable ruling for the client.
