Clarke, Modet & Cº is one of the largest groups specialized in Intellectual Property in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries, founded in Spain in 1879.

It was created as a company to manage patents and perform Intellectual Property services. Our walls are plastered in framed Industrial Property journals from the SPTO, some of which have changed the face of the industry since the 19th century. We have some real gems, such as Edison’s light bulb and Goodyear’s tire.

Since the 1960s the company has made a bid for expanding internationally by opening subsidiaries in Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Portugal and Mexico. Thirty years on, this start-up was completed with openings in Colombia, Chile, Peru and Uruguay, as well as, of course, the new territorial offices which we keep opening in each of the countries where we are present.

Our current presence in the world covers a total of 10 countries with more than 450 professional experts working from our 34 offices, together with a network of carefully selected agents across the world.

The key to our success is constant adaptation to the present and knowing how to anticipate market needs, which has always allowed us to offer ad-hoc customized solutions to accompany our clients throughout the life cycle of their IP rights.
