Experts in Industrial Property strategies
Industrial property: a key element of business strategy

Intellectual property is a set of exclusive rights that protect intangible heritage of companies; both their innovative activity manifested in new products, processes or designs, and their business activity by exclusive identification of products and services offered in the market.

This intangible heritage plays a crucial role in positioning a company in the market. A brand, for example, is a valuable strategic asset that can build long-term relationships with clients, customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders.

Companies are still not fully aware of the importance of this intangible capital and often ignore the fact that industrial and intellectual property is the right tool to optimally manage and exploit it. However, integrating intellectual property into business strategy, in the same way as a financial or marketing strategy, is essential.

In practice, intellectual and industrial property rights, among other things:

  • Provide a competitive advantage thanks to the monopoly they offer.
  • Increase the value of the intangible elements thanks to the protection afforded them.
  • Facilitate their transmission and exploitation.
  • Allow policies to develop income-generating licenses.
  • Increase the lifespan of products.
  • Increase safety in exploitation.
  • Convince or reassure business partners, financiers and customers.


  • National Protection

    By registering an industrial design the owner has exclusivity, but this right is territorial and only exists where the design is registered.

    The holder can extend the protection to other territories outside Spain, Spanish industrial design always having priority.

  • International Protection

    Since we are in a global economy, companies are starting to need to obtain protection for the same invention in other countries.

    More and more Spanish companies are protecting these inventions using protection procedures such as the PCT or European Patent.

    How can an invention be protected outside of Spain?

    There are different possibilities and the applicant must assess which option they are interested in depending on:

    Geographical location - where is it needed?
    The Language
    Time and cost
