Alartis Abogados, a legal boutique dedicated to legal advice and defense in intellectual and industrial property matters, led by Miguel Angel Ramos, has arrived to the legal sector. It is oriented to the legal advice of individuals and companies that need a strategic ally to safeguard their creations and intangible assets.
The firm has more than 15 years of experience focused on the cultural and artistic sector, advising on intellectual and industrial property law, as well as civil and commercial litigation. “Accompanying and helping people and companies in this sector is a great personal and professional satisfaction, given that, at the end of the day, culture and industrial innovation are the bases or engines for progress in any society. In Spain, moreover, it accounts for around 2.4% of GDP and 3.5% of employment,” Ramos points out.

Creative and entertainment industries
Alartis, which is born with the objective of growth and openness to new partners and associates, will continue to focus on advising creative and entertainment industries, given that in Spain there is “a great heritage and a rich cultural heritage, as well as a growing entertainment industry,” explains Ramos.
