The firm wishes to provide individuals and enterprises with legal assistance in the field of inventive and creative activities.
Within these activities, nowadays, distinctive signs and trademarks have become increasingly important, considering their use in the market, as well by advertisement and sponsoring.
Study and research, which lead to creation and invention (so-called euresis – ευρεσις), need to have a certain and well-defined legal context in order to be protected, which shows up with the language (the logos - λογος).
In a geographical area such as the European Union, where creations and technologies are exported as well, the definition and the protection of intellectual property plays an increasingly important role; in this context copyright, of which software is a material component, gains importance. At the basis of the economical process the goods, originally conceived as material goods (produced by manufacturing), evolve in immaterial, intangible goods, a concept based on knowledge (protected by a patent or as know-how) and information. The latter, which can be protected as trade secrets or databases, can also be made up of personal data (so-called privacy) that take particular importance in the Internet-related economy. The Internet has also allowed the development of the e-commerce, meaning an economy in a digital environment.
In this context, with particular reference to Italy, it is to underline the increasing importance both civil and criminal (including following a customs detention) of the denomination Made in Italy, as well as the protection of design (that is of the shape of the products) and of typical food products (PDO and PGI).
In the intellectual property law area, besides the judicial assistance, both in civil and criminal proceedings, the legal services provide a very relevant consultancy (non-contentious) activity, as well as negotiation and drafting of contracts (assignments, licensing, franchising and distribution), on the basis of which intellectual property circulates in Italy, in the European Union and at a worldwide level.
