Lydia Gobena counsels and advises clients on international trademark, industrial design, copyright, and unfair competition issues. She develops strategies for acquiring, enforcing, and assigning intellectual property rights with an emphasis on foreign laws and international treaties, and litigates international and multi-country conflicts. Lydia advises clients on related IP transactional issues in the context of IP portfolio audits and due diligence for acquisitions or divestitures. She also conducts global trademark clearance projects including analysis and evaluation of search data and related risks, investigations and negotiations relating to prior third party rights, and implementing global filing strategy. Lydia has championed countless court and trademark office decisions for major brand owners acknowledging the fame of their trademarks in jurisdictions around the world, thereby preventing the registration and—in certain instances—use of infringing third-party trademarks. She also secured one of the first criminal convictions for trademark infringement in Chile.
