Mr. Rodríguez’s expertise in numerous areas of IP has made him one of the most sought-after versatile lawyers by clients, who trust his comprehensive legal advice and innovative and ingenious strategies for their legal matters. His time at OLIVARES since 2007 has served to deepen his understanding of IP law, which is reflected in his postgraduate and master’s degree levels of study. This experience has allowed him to achieve success in various areas of IP, including impressive litigation results, as well as remarkable outcomes in copyright matters. Mr. Rodríguez has served as a professor at various educational institutions and published numerous articles related to his practice and the law —making him an authority on intellectual property law throughout Mexico.
