Since 1995 protecting Intellectual Property Rights, integrating knowledge with innovation and agility.


We have a team working directly with the INPI for greater efficiency in the services provided.


Lemma & Santos is an Intellectual Property office that was created two decades ago by the partners when they decided it was time to apply their knowledge of many years working as managers and lawyers of intellectual property companies in their own businesses. They then got in touch with a group of lawyers they worked with and Lemma & Santos was born out of this partnership. They had everything they needed: knowledge, partners and international contacts.

After months of hard work and publicity to publicize the company, they got their first clients abroad and, from there, the company grew so much that it currently has clients in several countries covering the five continents, America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania.


The company's success is due to the fact that it has lawyers specialized in the area, engineers, designers, translators and consultants working together. In addition, they have employees trained in Industrial Property matters. To improve our knowledge, we also have a team of collaborators in Rio de Janeiro working directly with the INPI for greater efficiency of the services provided. The services entrusted to them can be performed in the office and, when necessary, at the clients' premises, by specialized technical consultants.
