Ariela Agosin is a Partner in the Civil Litigation and Arbitration Group at Albagli Zaliasnik (AZ).
She has extensive experience in matters of international law, civil and commercial litigation, including the areas of unfair competition, antitrust, arbitration, advertising law and intellectual property. With relation to IP, Ariela oversees issues and disputes regarding trademarks, patents, copyrights, information technology, and licensing, including the litigation related to these matters. Furthermore, her wide scope of practice includes brand protection in general and complex proceedings in the pharmaceutical and health care industries.
Last year our Civil Litigation Group went through a major renovation. Our leading IP litigator and previous IP Group Director, Ariela, took over as head of the department initiating a whirlwind of changes. She has rebuilt the entire team from the ground up, doubling its size and making strong lateral hires from outside the firm in addition to appointing a new Civil Litigation Group Director to focus on day to day matters. Due to her forward-thinking vision, the new team has extensive technical experience, is more internationally focused -with each team member speaking English-, and is more dynamically fit to work collectively in order to achieve the needs and goals of their clients.
Year after year, Ariela continues to be one of the top lawyers in her respective fields. Major publications and rankings such as Chambers & Partners, Best Lawyers, IAM Patent 1000, World Trademark Review, and Managing IP regularly distinguish Ariela’s outstanding work. Since 2015, she has been singled out as a Leading Lawyer by Legal 500.
Moreover, on June 26, 2018, after more than 10 years of litigation hearings at the Supreme Court level regarding the disputed trademark “Termas de Chillán a Nevados y municipio”, Ariela finally won the case on behalf of the client, Gran Hotel Termas de Chillán. She expertly proved fame and notoriety of the trademark, and as a result of her tireless perseverance, the trademark was granted distinctiveness. This in turn, further solidifies her performance as a top litigator among her peers in Chile and Latin America.
Ariela holds a JD from Universidad de Chile, an LLM from St. Thomas University (Miami), and several certificates and post-graduate studies. In late 2017, she was appointed as Chair of the INTA Committee on Emerging Issues, as well as a judge of the Chilean Bar Ethics Tribunal, and is a Member of the Legislation and Regulation Committee of ASIPI.
