Practice areas


Protecting a creation against non-authorised exploitation by third parties is one of the primary components of any business strategy and is critical when it comes to translating any innovation into a business success. Filing for and being granted a patent is a fundamental step in assuring the holder the right of prohibiting the unauthorised reproduction and exploitation of an invention. The patent claims, descriptions and drawings thus become the “business library”, that is, the permanent trace of the growth of know-how of every company.


The trademark is a distinctive symbol; it becomes the point of reference, the message the company wants to transmit to the market. In just a few words and often in just a few letters an infinite set of information is communicated to the consumer. Therefore, protecting a trademark becomes critical.


Never before this period, especially in Italy, has protecting the product design been perceived as so necessary. A captivating and attractive product, and thus endowed with a distinctive character, is favoured in the hard contest governed by free competition. This is particularly true for internationally recognized Italian design, which must be protected in the international arena to remain ahead of the times.
