Italy

Although Italy was hit hard by the covid-19 pandemic, it is refreshing to see the buoyancy of its IP landscape and the can-do attitude of local practitioners. The trademark community is abuzz with several threads of conversation – one in particular relating to marchi storici, marks specifically intended to denote the national historical significance of culturally relevant brand names. As of 16 April 2020, these new marks are open for public registration to those eligible. Rights holders are also encouraged to be extra vigilant when operating on online platforms, which are being flooded with fakes at an alarming pace. Amazon’s establishment of a new Counterfeit Crimes Unit, dedicated to bringing counterfeiters to justice, should also significantly assist local enforcement efforts. Another talking point is the arrival of international consultancy group Dennemeyer through its acquisition of De Simone & Partners. Overall, there has been a push for practices to diversify their offerings as competition continues to heat up and the line between traditional law firms and trademark attorney firms blurs even further.

Firms

Bird & Bird LLP

“Dynamic, budget conscious and quick on their feet” is the verdict on Bird & Bird’s Italian practitioners. The ensemble has been on sparkling form lately, showcasing exactly why the international powerhouse sets the gold standard across the branding spectrum. For example, Massimiliano Mostardini successfully represented Ferrero in a dispute concerning the shape of its famous Tic-Tac mints container. “One of the country’s best litigators”, Mostardini also regularly advises Renè Caovilla on safeguarding its exclusive rights and ensures the market is clear of fakes for the luxury footwear designer. Joining him on both mandates, Fulvio Mellucci capitalises on three decades of experience and a refined understanding of legislative instruments to “provide completely precise and reliable guidance”. “A leading authority on geographical indications”, Giovanni Galimberti assists the likes of Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano and Consorzio del Prosecco, for which he played a hand in securing a precedent-setting judgment on the enforcement of protected denominations of origin in Europe. The “extensive trademark knowledge and prompt advice” of non-contentious division head Paola Ruggiero makes Bird & Bird a fine destination for prosecution too. Distinguished wine manufacturer Carpenè Malvolti is a key client which relies on her for perceptive strategies and worldwideprotection.

BonelliErede

“A prominent firm with top-level professionals in every legal field”, BonelliErede services some of the most prestigious names in the fashion and luxury goods sectors. The general practice outfit builds focus groups around patrons, works seamlessly across its three Italian offices and brings in colleagues from its European and Middle Eastern outposts as necessary for instructions with an international flavour. “A well-respected and highly regarded litigator”, Giovanni Guglielmetti “is absolutely outstanding. He is customer-oriented, understands what a business needs and is easy to collaborate with, thanks to his punctuality andefficiency”.

Bresner Cammareri Intellectual Property – BCIP 

“Established in 2018, the boutique provides wall-to-wall services, but its global anti-counterfeiting campaigns are the talk of the town and have already won it the loyalty of numerous elite players in the fashion industry. Their architect is Davide Bresner, “an excellent, efficient and super-organised lawyer with great communication skills. He executes every task with utmost precision”. Department co-lead Emanuele Cammareri sees to it that filing and prosecution instructions are met to the highest standard. He often appears before the EUIPO and has recently been handling opposition proceedings for luxury hotel group NEROHotels. Bresner Cammareri Intellectual Property has made a strong entrance, with its deeply experienced team, distinguished portfolio of top-tier brands and fresh approach. It is proof that fantastic ideas make waves on the legal landscape and the firm shines brighter every year.” “They are really responsive, easy-going and offer practical as well as bespoke solutions to all sorts of problems, while taking costs into consideration too.”

DLA Piper

A heavyweight in the trademark space, DLA Piper’s Milan contingent brings a wealth of international resources and impressive local knowledge to the table. Something that differentiates it from a lot of other big players is its thriving filing and prosecution division – a relative rarity among Italian law firms. A key player in its establishment has been Annamaria Algieri, who now heads up the unit. The European trademark and design attorney drafts immaculately and has recently taken over high-end restaurant Paper Moon’s entire portfolio. For all things contentious, stalwarts Gualtiero Dragotti and Roberto Valenti have it covered. IP department spearhead Dragotti is equally at home litigating patent and trademark cases in the life sciences arena. Similarly versatile, Valenti capitalises on his insight in ancillary disciplines – such as copyright, designs, unfair competition and advertising law – to come up trumps in complex disputes. He recently secured a win at the Venetian Court of Appeal on behalf of Franklin & Marshall regarding the registration and use of its mark on clothing. Joining them in the WTR 1000 this year is Elena Varese, an ambidextrous lawyer and point of reference on fashion lawquestions.

Herbert Smith Freehills LLP

Companies of all shapes and sizes flock to Herbert Smith Freehills in their droves – not only for its comprehensive suite of branding services, innovative approach and international capabilities, but also for the personal touch that comes with it all. Lately, the set has been immersed in unravelling multifaceted disputes, namely for VR Coaster. Hot-shot litigator Laura Orlando and the commercially savvy Pietro Pouché brought issues concerning the criteria and method for the technical assessment of virtual reality devices to light in an intricate infringement and unfair competition proceeding. Pouché has also linked up with Sara Balice to assist Indeed, a worldwide employment-related search engine, in a cybersecurity case concerning the unlawful reproduction of its website and marks therein. Balice earns acclaim for her collaborative ethos and facility for the lifesciences.

Hogan Lovells

The technologically advanced offering at Hogan Lovells resonates in particular with those seeking efficiency, transparency and top-tier sophistication. Its online toolkit includes InProtech, a trademark patent and design records system with relevant alerts; the Mercuriam platform, which allows for real-time portfolio access; and domain name management solution Anchovy. Critical trademark litigation is a speciality here, courtesy of Luigi Mansani and Giovanni Ghirardi, who are both at the top of their game. Creative problem solver Mansani is a repository of trust for Starbucks and stamps out infringements on its behalf; while Ghirardi is a prime candidate for pan-European actions in the technology sector. Building up branding strategies from scratch is one of Maria Luce Piattelli’s strong suits, along with her ability to remove counterfeits from online and physical marketplaces both swiftly anddiscreetly.

IP LAW GALLI 

“Resolutely committed to excellent customer service, IP Law Galli successfully manages sensitive branding issues across Europe, Asia and the United States. It acts as an extended arm of a company’s own in-house team, provides quick, commercially oriented advice and helps its clients to achieve their goals.” It is led by one of the most prominent thought leaders and the “toughest litigator” in Italy, Cesare Galli, who “truly loves his work. He readily makes himself available, always listens and has a deep knowledge of legal precedents – all of which he combines with a swift, effective and practical approach”. Often working alongside him is the tried, tested and true Mariangela Bogni, who possesses razor-sharp advocacy skills. The pair recently represented luxury cosmetics and skincare brand Sisley Paris in a ground-breaking dispute against Amazon concerning selective distribution on e-commerceplatforms.

Martini Manna Avvocati

Although lean in size, Martini Manna offers the same levels of energy, sophistication and know-how to be found at big law firms. Smart investment in technology has optimised efficiency and freed up more partner time so that clients can get the most bang for their buck – a proposition which has caught the eye of both SMEs and major conglomerates alike. Namesakes Elena Martini and Luigi Manna can handle the full spectrum of brand protection between them and recently assisted Invicta Watch Company of America and Glycine Watch in infringement proceedings brought by Armani; the pair’s smooth negotiation skills and big-picture thinking resulted in a win-win settlement. Clients have particular praise for Martini, “who is super-attentive and extremely helpful throughout the whole process. Elena is immensely knowledgeable, shows great understanding of business priorities and handles emergencies swiftly and with utmost care. She never limits herself to what has been asked for, but rather anticipates potential risks and develops effective solutions to combatthem”.

Nctm Studio Legale

When it comes to safeguarding intangible assets in the fashion and luxury goods industry, Nctm is a go-to for some of the biggest names in the business, procuring 360-degree protection for the likes of Gucci, Mou Limited, Manolo Blahnik and Lamborghini. It comes as no surprise that, with a roster of this calibre, the group excels at securing favourable results in anti-counterfeiting too. Team captain Lorenzo Attolico is “always supportive and his advice brings about the best as well as the quickest solutions in disputes. He is attentive, precise and one of the best lawyers in the community”. Over in Milan, colleague Paolo Lazzarino “provides valuable guidance while staying with budgetary constraints. He is responsive, understanding and a true pleasure to workwith”.

Simmons & Simmons LLP

Full-service outfit Simmons & Simmons is an imposing presence on the global IP landscape and its Italian contingent is equally impressive. The ensemble recently added a bespoke AI-driven platform to its innovation toolkit, which predicts the outcome of trademark conflicts in Europe to 93% accuracy through mark-to-mark comparisons. “Super-strong litigators and highly skilled operators Giulio Enrico Sironi and Stefania Bergia represent an incredible portfolio of clients.” Having worked together for over 20 years, they know each other just as well as they know the pharmaceutical and technology industries in which theyoperate.

Spheriens

“The number one firm for IP matters in Italy by far, Spheriens has the capacity to tackle instructions from every angle and provides a friendly, customer-oriented service. It quickly grasps clients’ market positions and long-term plans, and combines this with its own expertise to achieve cost-effective outcomes.” In charge is Pier Luigi Roncaglia, who “approaches matters in a strategic, holistic and thoughtful way, and with a level of pragmatism that is unparalleled. He is vastly experienced and his analyses are crucial to those looking to build up their brands”. He recently teamed up with Noemi Parrotta to represent Narcos Productions, of the famous Narcos series, before the EUIPO; and to assist Richemont International before the same body. “Noemi is brilliant, super-reliable and has great energy. You can always count on her to give great, accurate and practical advice.” In contentious scenarios, including the fight against counterfeits, Carloalberto Giovannetti and Giacomo Moleri are staunch allies: “There is never any beating around the bush with the pair; they are proactive, quick and always accurate. Their sound advice and pleasant demeanour make them wonderful to workwith.”

Studio Legale Jacobacci & Associati

With offices in Milan, Rome and Turin, as well as further branches in Paris and Madrid, Jacobacci & Associati, is perfectly positioned to assist its diverse and cosmopolitan clientele. Anti-counterfeiting is a forte, but the group also knocks it out of the park on complex litigation for high-flying patrons in the luxury goods sector; it has also lately seen an uptick in instructions from brands in the food and beverage industry. Founder Fabrizio Jacobacci has a glowing reputation for his contentious nous. He recently represented vehicle manufacturer Piaggio at the Court of Appeal, securing confirmation that the shape of its famous Vespa scooter qualifies as a 3D mark. “Marco Francetti’s guidance is always clear and solutions-driven, while his legal knowledge and tactical capabilities are beyond question. He is warmly recommended for the most difficult negotiations and high-profile disputes.” Completing the triumvirate is Paola Gelato, “one of the leading figures in the country. Not only does she master the legalities of the questions asked, but she has the rare ability to speak the same language as in-house counsel when proposingsolutions”.

Trevisan & Cuonzo

Unanimously hailed as a top-tier boutique by peers, Trevisan & Counzo “performs at the highest standard”. Its A-to-Z service was recently strengthened further with the arrival of Roberta Garzia as the new head of trademark prosecution. The European trademark and design attorney is also admitted to the bar and consistently looks to add value to the portfolios she maintains through her holistic counsel. Holding down the fort on the contentious side are Julia Holden and Lia Puntieri. Holden is “an invaluable asset to anyone looking to protect their rights in Italy. She is bright, creative and dynamic, as well as an excellent communicator who is brilliant at translating legal complexities into concise, commercial advice”. She recently partnered up with Puntieri to design an ironclad enforcement programme for 3M. “Lia is an astute adviser and strategist, with a practical approach,” enthuses one devotee. “She has never lost a case and has the interpersonal skills to successfully execute amicable settlements too.” Leading lights and eminent litigators Luca Trevisan and Gabriel Cuonzo have raked in numerous precedent-setting wins in their combined 80 years ofpractice.

“Thorough, cost-conscious and excellent strategic advice” is the calling card of Buzzi Notaro & Antonielli d’Oulx.

Active across the trademark lifecycle, Enrico Antonielli d’Oulx has amassed a wealth of know-how over almost 40 years at the IP coalface, particularly in anti-counterfeiting.

Mara Mondolfo and Angelica Torrigiani Malaspina set the pace for the Milan and Florence offices respectively.
