IP

We are committed to providing the best protection of your ideas, works and products against infringement and appropriation and any possible damage to IP. And we can most certainly also help you get the most value out of your IP.

Our team of highly specialised experts are ready to assist you with ordinary to extraordinary transactions, and able to provide the responses you need within the time you need, even in particularly complex cases. We operate independently in Italy and, abroad, in conjunction with some of the world’s leading firms.

We can represent you in any dispute before courts and administrative authorities concerning patents and know-how (even in the most high-tech sectors), trademarks and geographical indications, designs, copyright and media, misleading and comparative advertising.

We have solid experience in the field of unfair competition, having provided support in highly complex cases involving theft of confidential information, poaching of staff, and look alikes.

We can assist you with licensing, distribution, franchising and R&D agreements. But we don’t stop there. We also offer support with joint ventures and strategic alliances, through the transfer of technologies and commercial and joint-marketing plans.

We can draw on the specific expertise of the firm’s various focus teams (fashion, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, automotive and heavy industry technologies, industrial printing, software and IT, food and beverage).
