With more than 6 million people, the former capital of Brazil is still the main gateway to our country. It houses our PTO, Federal Courts in which I.P. disputes are ruled and the first specialized I.P. Courts in charge of infringement disputes within the State.

Araripe & Associados is based in the heart of this vibrant city, in front of the State Court, four blocks away from the Federal Court, and within walking distance from the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office – INPI. Not by chance, this office concentrates its work on administrative disputes and I.P. litigation.
