Intellectual Property

  1. Technological innovation has led to exponential development in industrial and intellectual property fields, multiplying the possibilities of optimising and protecting the creative assets of companies. Trademarks, patents, know-how (both technological and commercial) and databases are now the core of many business and, when supported by new technologies (artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud, internet of things, etc.) can be enhanced at all levels and exploited in an unprecedented, capillary manner.
  1. We have accrued significant experience in all the traditional areas of industrial and intellectual property (trademarks, patents, design, know-how, databases and copyright), as well as in the neighbouring areas of competition and data management.
  1. We provide assistance to enterprises, research entities (both public and private), inventors, designers and authors, aware of how important it is to provide a tailor-made assistance combining high quality with constant professional development to march the specific needs of the client.
  1. We support our clients, helping them optimise their creative assets both through the preparation, negotiation and execution of contracts for the exploitation of IP rights (including contracts for licensing, franchising, merchandising, R&D, MTA, collaboration and protection of know-how) and in the context of extraordinary operations.
  1. We help our clients in protecting their intangibles, managing all forms of ordinary or precautionary, as well as administrative and criminal, disputes, monitoring for anti-counterfeiting activities - also with regards to custom and duties issues - and organising on-line brand protection campaigns.
  1. Thanks to a deep-rooted and independent network of international collaborations, we can assist clients with transnational operations and disputes and coordinate cross-border consultancy. Our professionals hold regularly classes and cultivate scientific studies, including collaborations with publishers.
