Attorney at Law
Spanish Patent and Trademark Attorney
European Trademark Attorney

In 1993, after graduating  from the Madrid Complutense  University, Óscar joined the Trademark Department of one of the major Spanish IP Law firms.  After years of hard work and after proving to have the right attitude and  aptitude, Óscar became the head of the department and a partner in the firm,  where he stayed until he decided to join the BALDER project.

Óscar deals with  all aspects of prosecution in relation to trademarks, but with a special focus  on Spanish and Community Trademarks. Although he left his files at his former  office, his knowledge and experience is now at BALDER.

Apart from his work as a  trademark consultant, Óscar frequently lectures on trademark related topics. He  has also collaborated in the edition of several magazines and manuals focused  on IP, including Factbook:  Propiedad Industrial (Thomson – Aranzadi) and Practitioner’s Manual for Trademark  Prosecution and Litigation in the EU (Sweet & Maxwell).

Òscar is an active INTA  member, chairing table topics, being part of committees and collaborating as a  Spanish contributor to the International  Opposition Guide.

In his spare time, Òscar  enjoys playing tennis or riding his mountain-bike with friends, throughout the  countryside. He also likes reading, especially books on modern history. And, of  course, travelling.

While enjoying spending  time and relaxing with his family, Òscar would get bored without new  challenges. Hopefully, the BALDER project will keep boredom out of Óscar’s life  for the next decade!
