Impacts and Implications of Trans-Pacific Partnership on Intellectual Property Protection and Enforcement
The recent signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) among twelve Pacific Rim countries has created a buzz across the globe. While the agreement seeks to strengthen economic ties and promote new trade opportunities, the TPP also raises crucial concerns about intellectual property rights. As the TPP Intellectual Property (IP) Chapter imposes more restrictive standards, critics believe that the deal will rewrite global IP protection and enforcement rules. Thus, it is important for companies to keep themselves abreast with the recent developments to avoid potential risks and penalties.

Alejandro Luna leads the IP Litigation, Regulatory and Administrative Litigation practices and is Co-chair of the Life Sciences & Pharmaceutical law industry group. Mr. Luna has been crucial to the heart of Mexico’s intellectual property legal system as one of the few true patent-regulatory litigation experts in Mexico. He acts on behalf of his clients as an attorney and in some cases as a lobbyist for industry groups focused on the Pharmaceuticals market. Mr. Luna has participated in questioning the constitutionality of certain provisions of the Industrial Property Law and the Federal Copyright Law. In order to make more accessible the monetary compensation derived from the violation of IP rights, he is the sponsor of an important proposal to modify the system of litigation and enforcement of IP rights in Mexico. He also has spearheaded a litigation strategy that has resulted in an important precedent for the patent linkage regulation and life terms of pipeline patents in Mexico. As a result of his involvement, he was selected as the delegate to represent AMIIF, the industry association for R&D pharmaceutical companies who do business in Mexico, in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations.
