ORPAN was established in 1955 by brothers Joaquin Soruco (1908 – 1984) and Gonzalo Soruco (1910 – 1994). It was one of the first specialized law firms in patent and trademark matters in Bolivia.

The daughter of co-founder Joaquín Soruco, Mrs. Pilar Soruco, took over the direction of ORPAN in 1986.

At present, Mrs. Soruco is the main partner of ORPAN, working with a specialized team of more than 20 attorneys, assistants and paralegals. Among them is Mr. Wolfgang Ohnes, who previously was National Director of the Bolivian Patent and Trademarks Office and practitioner in the private sector since year 2000 in local and regional IP law firms.
