Our History

In 1986, trademarks and patents companies were located largely in the big centers. The companies of the interior of the State of São Paulo lacked knowledge regarding IP and depended on companies from the state capital. We’re talking about a time when there was no Internet or cell phones, and when traditional mail correspondence was the best form of communication between companies. Noticing this gap in the market, in 1986, VILAGE Marcas e Patentes initiated its activities in São José do Rio Preto with a philosophy of always providing personal service, and personalizing solutions for all the situations and needs of our clients.

Another concern that has always been part of VILAGE’s philosophy was to keep our clients well informed. With this, we adopt the posture of ministering in-company lectures, in professional associations, universities, technical courses, etc. to disseminate and expand the knowledge on the subject of Intellectual Property to the widest possible public.

With the advent of the Internet, VILAGE launched its website and, within the transparency policy, it was the first company to open the trademark search archives for free to anyone interested. This fact was the subject of cover story in the Journal Gazeta Mercantil.

The process of expansion of the company was natural, since the entrepreneurs of the most diverse regions not only of the State of São Paulo, but also of the country, requested the physical presence of VILAGE. Today, we have our own offices in all regions of the country, as well as two offices strategically located in the United States and England.

VILAGE has a team of more than 100 professionals including Biologists, Chemists, Pharmacists, Physicists, Systems Analysts, Programmers, Mathematicians, Mechanical Engineers, Electrical and Hydraulic Engineers, Designers, Advertisers, all SPECIALIZED IN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY , trained and strategically distributed in more than 20 offices in all regions of Brazil. In addition to the trust translated into our personalized service, our Consultants know and dominate the particularities of their regions, which provides our clients with unique, tailored and targeted actions.

We currently serve 20,000 clients between individuals and companies, both Brazilian and foreign. There are more than 70,000 processes required before the BRPTO.
