At Burning Rubber we take licensing seriously and represent a range of what we call ‘Petrol-head’ brands for the European market, which include Gas Monkey Garage, Orange County Choppers, Exile Cycles, Salinas Boys, Quarter Mile and TVR. Ballester IP have helped us to tackle the challenges we face resulting from the sale of counterfeit apparel found in our market and in addition helped us to apply for and secure Trademark protection for our own brand ‘Los Tremendos Latinos’ which will be sold in Europe and the United States. Their communication and attention to detail is excellent and we expect to benefit from their expertise for many years to come.
I have been working in the business world for a long time, and I have had to manage several IP projects. After all these years, I can assure that I have never met any offices with the same level of professionalism, confidence and hard work as Rosalía Ballester’s. They work very hard and choosing them is a guarantee of success. Thank you for your commitment.
I have counted upon Ballester IP’s support for over 12 years to develop my patent portfolio and I can highlight their high qualification, professionalism and quality in IP management. I can also emphasize that Rosalía and her entire team have offered me their professional honesty and accompaniment during this difficult road towards achieving the grant of every patent.
I have worked with Rosalia and her team for many years. They are always very responsive and very creative in their approach to IP issues. They are also good people. In short, they are a delight to work with and I hope to work with them for many years to come.
After almost a year working with Ballester IP to protect our trademarks worldwide, we have taken a huge step thanks to their knowledge and experience. They are a great team, regarding both personal and professional treatment. To us, it is as if they were a part of our company.
Working with Ballester means having the peace of mind of having an internal staff member who is professional and competent, who provides continuous monitoring and not having to pay a salary at the end of the month.
Compact boutique Ballester IP bursts into the WTR 1000 rankings this year following hearty recommendations from peers and brand owners alike. “Technical expertise, efficiency, proactivity and innovation” are the calling cards of its all-embracing trademark offering, which shines brightest in filing, oppositions and cancellations. “The team provides thoughtful and practical advice on the options for dealing with a particular problem. Clients’ goals and concerns are always taken into account.” Name partner Rosalía Ballester is the fulcrum around which the practice turns; the hands-on professional oversees each brief to ensure a consistently high-quality product. Considered the “go-to Spanish counsel” by prestigious foreign associates, she “takes time to know patrons’ businesses, shows detailed knowledge of the country’s IP laws and implements creative tactics in order to get the right result”.
After more than 75 years of industrial experience, with over 500 patents, including industrial designs and utility models, Ballester IP can be defined by their transparency, rigour, and professionalism. Investing in research, development and innovation is currently highly complicated. Therefore, fully knowing the means for protecting talent and creativity and thus ensuring that your rights factually prevail, becomes crucial for a deeply rooted Spanish manufacturing firm whose brand has been an industry leader for over 75 years. Really getting to know the meaning of “intellectual property” and “trademark value” meant a great deal for developing our new strategy. There is a huge difference between what it is and what we discovered thanks to Ballester IP’s team.
Rosalía Ballester and her team have been responsible for many years for our broad trademarks and patents portfolio worldwide. Not only have they helped us to manage our trademarks in a more effective way, but they also worry about keeping a transparent and fluid communication with us in order to get the most productive use of our portfolio in the simplest way possible. There is no doubt that they are professionals committed to their clients.
It is a constant challenge and a huge responsibility for our team to be in charge of the trademark and domain portfolio of an international company such as Viña Concha y Toro, present in over 140 countries with direct distribution, and it would not be possible without the counsel of high-level, reliable, straightforward and clear attorneys-at-law such as the services rendered by Ballester IP through the attorney-at-law Rosalía Ballester and her team. We have worked with other Spanish firms but it is hard to find the confidence and proximity inspired by Rosalía, especially when her work is successfully completed with such good results as those obtained since we entrusted our IP matters in Spain to her and her team more than a year ago.
For us, working with Ballester IP’s team means having the peace of mind of relying on true professionals who assist us on managing our IP matters in the best possible way. The closeness of their working method, despite having a full coverage, inspires confidence in such a sensitive issue as protecting the innovation created in our company.
