De Simone & Partners SpA
De Simone & Partners SpA was established in 2002 by Domenico de Simone to provide comprehensive assistance in all areas of industrial and intellectual property and, in particular, in the acquisition, exploitation and protection of trademarks, patents, designs, copyright and trade secrets. The law firm De Simone & Partners was founded in 2005 to assist clients in litigation related to these matters. The two structures bring together lawyers and patent attorneys who collaborate closely with a global network of highly experienced IP law firms and consultants.
De Simone & Partners assists both Italian and foreign companies operating in complex and constantly evolving sectors, including mechanics, electronics, pharmaceuticals, food and agricultural business, software, engineering, entertainment, telecommunications, publishing and sports. We represent these clients in the Italian courts and their specialised industrial and intellectual property sections.
De Simone & Partners is recognised by the most prestigious international rankings as a leader in Italy in assisting companies operating in the biotechnology and life sciences sector.
With the help of a team of external consultants, De Simone & Partners also provides skilled advice in the field of cyber security and corporate intelligence, particularly in relation to online counterfeiting and the theft of trade secrets.
Exclusivity rights should not be limited to the final product or service – they should apply to the original idea, research, funding, production and marketing too. The real competitive edge is measured by the integration of all these ‘before-the-market’ elements. For these reasons, our IP attorneys are closely involved in our clients’ business initiatives, playing a proactive role, providing strategic assistance on the feasibility and economic contribution of business projects, and acting as an interface between the creative R&D and marketing functions and the more conservative legal function. We invest in the knowledge of our clients’ business and support them in personalised planning for the protection and exploitation of intangible assets, providing our expertise on filing strategies and on the feasibility of business projects.
Timely, accurate and secure communication is of paramount importance in today’s global marketplace. This is particularly true in relation to the management of intellectual property, where time is often a key element in the effective protection of rights.
Our technological infrastructure has the necessary tools to provide the highest level of legal service at all times and we consider reliability and availability to be essential qualities for effective advice on IP rights.
Sharing is an essential prerequisite for innovation and a resource to be exploited for the creation of lasting values. With the support of professionals in each sector, including engineers, biologists and chemists, De Simone & Partners provides complete and effective advice to inventors by planning secure transfers of the results of scientific and technological research to the world of production, while safeguarding its competitive advantage.
