The Law Firm, specialized in the field of Intellectual Property, formerly known as Henry Caldera & Henry Caldera-Pallais, was founded in 1907 by Mr. Henry Caldera, as part of a three-way operation consisting also of the import and retail of goods. With time, these three operations became separate enterprises. That same year, and through the efforts of Mr. Caldera, Nicaragua had its first Trademark Law.

In the late 1930’s, Mr. Caldera’s older son, Henry Caldera-Pallais, after obtaining a Law degree in Nicaragua, furthered his studies in the University of Michigan, where he graduated to become a U.S. Registered Patent Agent. During his stay in the United States, he gained experience working with the New York firm of Lagner, Parry, Card and Largner. In the late 1940’s, Mr. Caldera-Pallais returned to Nicaragua to take charge of the Law Firm, which became known as Henry Caldera & Henry Caldera-Pallais.
