Italy

Like most of its European counterparts, Italy has implemented the latest EU Trademark Directive (2015/2436) into its national laws. The legislation entered into force on 23 March 2019 and has introduced some notable changes, which have so far been met with great enthusiasm by the country’s practitioners. The graphical representation requirement for the registration of non-conventional marks has been removed, while new grounds for opposition procedures have been implemented. Additionally, new administrative procedures will allow revocation and invalidity proceedings to be brought before the Italian IP Office (UIBM). The revamped laws cater to companies’ business needs and encourage IP protection throughout the country. Practitioners are also buzzing about the UIBM’s new fast-track examination system, under which some trademark applications have been published in just two days. Geographical indications and denominations of origin are also on the rise as Italian agents work around the clock to protect the rights of various consortia, who have become increasingly vigilant about their ‘made in’ marks.

Firms

BonelliErede

“Powerful and well-established” general practice firm BonelliErede operates out of three locations in Italy – Rome, Milan and Genoa – and has further offices in Europe as well as the Middle East. It is perfectly positioned to enforce and monetise the rights of its high-flying clients in the luxury sector across the fashion capitals of the world and recently joined forces with Lombardi e Associati, an independent local law firm, adding a further 70 experts to its team sheet. “A man always held in high esteem, Giovanni Guglielmetti is Italy’s best trial litigator. Grounded and business oriented, he has incomparable skills and experience and his arguments are persuasive and technically solid. When Giovanni says that your case will be a success, it certainly will.”

He is also super friendly and always easy to reach.” On the non-contentious side, co-founder Emanuele Cammareri “is a go-to for prosecution matters locally and at the EUIPO”. Finely attuned to each client’s commercial needs, he crafts strategies that reflect their entrepreneurial ambitions.

DLA Piper

Global reach and impressive in-depth local knowledge are the hallmarks of DLA Piper in Milan. Its forward-thinking practitioners help brand owners to realise their commercial objectives through innovative portfolio management and an enviable enforcement toolbox. Instilling the crew with robust leadership, Gualtiero Dragotti “is simply brilliant. Everything he touches is of the highest quality.” The president of the Italian group of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property is often found battling it out in high-stakes litigation. Joining him is courtroom ace Roberto Valenti, who capitalises on his knowledge of misleading and comparative advertising and unfair competition law to ensure that his pleadings cover all angles – he is a dab hand at licensing and transfer agreements too.

Herbert Smith Freehills LLP

Recently launching its Global Legal Operations (GLO) function and Innovation 10, Herbert Smith Freehills is dedicated to revolutionising the industry and boasts systems that are just as sharp as the service it offers.

For distribution agreements and disputes arising out of them, WTR 1000 newcomer Sara Balice is a smart choice. “Business minded and proactive, she suggests effective solutions that showcase her knowledge of the industries her clients operate in.”

Hogan Lovells

“One of the best firms in the country,” Hogan Lovells never rests on its laurels and always comes up with novel solutions to expertly protect trademark rights both online and in the physical market place. The group recently unveiled Total Brand Care, which tackles the challenges faced by rights holders in a holistic manner and provides them with a unique platform from which to monitor their marks. Supported by Anchovy – Hogan Lovells’ domain name management solution/platform – the set can also act quickly on domain name enforcement actions. “Seasoned trademark guru,” Luigi Mansani takes the helm. “A brilliant counsellor with a deep understanding of intellectual property, he is able to weave together trademark, patent and copyright issues as necessary to create the strongest position for his clients when facing infringers.” Another tried and tested litigator, Giovanni Ghirardi has had his fair share of precedent-setting disputes in over two decades of practice. Offering strategic brand counselling and while working hard to stamp out counterfeits for some of the world’s biggest brands is second nature to Maria Luce Piattelli. “A highly capable and pragmatic expert, she parries defences and delivers outstanding results.”

IP Law Galli 

IP Law Galli garners some of the most enthusiastic feedback of any Italian law firm: “The outfit is responsive, professional and proficient. Its lawyers demonstrate the deepest knowledge of trademark and commercial law and have a great aptitude for teamwork. They define the best strategies to adopt, identify relevant documentation and actively collaborate with clients, demonstrating superb commercial awareness and dedication.” The set dominates in high-profile litigation and sews up licensing agreements with finesse. The man behind the moniker, Cesare Galli “is an extraordinary and prestigious attorney. He has the knowledge of an academic, the stamina of a litigator and the common sense of a business man.” In the words of one patron, “Cesare’s approach is rational and efficient; he will not waste time on matters that don’t help our cause. He is one to rely on for important cases and is cost-conscious too.” His colleague Mariangela Bogni “always comes prepared, making to-the point decisions quickly and guiding you through complex litigation effectively. A fantastic listener, she is reachable at any time of the day. Her legal expertise in combination with her interpersonal skill make all the difference.”

Martini Manna Avvocati

“Martini Manna’s strength lies in convoluted multi-jurisdictional disputes and the skilful negotiation of transactions.” Up-to-the-minute knowledge of its customers’ markets, cosmopolitan thinking and rapid response rates are all characteristics of its poised practitioners. Firm founder Elena Martini embodies these traits. “Elena impresses with her understanding of local laws and the strategies she crafts. She is a top-notch litigator who stands out in a competitive market.” Another versatile practitioner, Luigi Manna performs adroitly in contentious administrative proceedings and is a noted expert on all things domain name and IT related.

Nctm Studio Legale

A favourite among the biggest names in the fashion and luxury goods sector, Nctm Studio Legale delivers a tight 360-degree brand protection offering and dazzles in the fight against fakes. In the words of one client, “Lorenzo Attolico keeps us looped in at all times. He makes decisions in a timely fashion and provides valuable strategic advice on a daily basis. His availability and accessibility really drive our brand forward.” Operating out of Rome, he negotiates for Gucci and spots infringements and enforces marks on behalf of Mou Limited. Milan-based and “highly rated, Paolo Lazzarino is an outstanding litigator. He understands how company stakeholders think and tailors his advice to suit. He is loved by lawyers across the pond and has a fantastic sense of humour.”

Simmons & Simmons LLP

Simmons & Simmons got the town buzzing when it drafted Stefania Bergia and Giulio Enrico Sironi into its ranks. The acquisition further cemented the global ensemble’s presence in the country and patrons can now reap the rewards of its international reach and depth of expertise. Thanks to the dynamic duo, who were trained at esteemed professor-led boutique Studio Vanzetti e Associati, pharmaceutical and technology know-how is found in abundance. Bergia and Sironi have been working side by side for over two decades and are almost telepathic in their thinking. “Their preparations are superb and you know there will be a fair battle in the courtroom when they are on the other side. Stefania and Giulio are really friendly and highly effective professionals you can absolutely rely on.”

Spheriens

“You could look high and low and still not find a firm as brilliant as Spheriens. Incredibly fun to work with,” the IP powerhouse has it all – it has been growing its filing and prosecution practice and maintains its position as the “best trademark litigation outfit in Italy”. Its captain Pier Luigi Roncaglia is the first port of call for briefs with international ramifications. “If the matter concerns fashion, luxury goods or anything design related, Pier Luigi hits it out of the park. His advice is commercial, pragmatic and prompt. He is simply world class.” Of late, he has been representing Hard Rock Holdings in an infringement dispute and assisting Louis Vuitton Malletier in opposition proceedings. Working alongside him on the latter, Noemi Parrotta keeps a steady hand in both administrative proceedings and cross-border enforcement mandates. “A talented and creative litigator, the amount of personal attention she gives to cases is rarely encountered. She is also an anti-counterfeiting expert and delivers crisp results through her fruitful relationship with police and customs authorities.” Navigating through all the stages of a trademark’s lifecycle, “superstar Lorenzo Litta knows everything about intellectual property. His solutions are creative, off the beaten track and achieve outstanding outcomes. Moreover, Lorenzo is a real rainmaker – the number of top US clients on his roster is exceptional and his connections are even better.” When it comes to smashing up pirates and dispute resolution, Carloalberto Giovannetti and Giacomo Moleri take care of business every time. “Their knowledge is second to none and their guidance is consistently clear. They get the job done without any fuss, the cooperation is seamless and the pair are always one step ahead of the game.”

Studio Legale Bird & Bird

The set made the decision a few years ago to diversify its practice to offer a comprehensive suite of branding services and is raking in the benefits. Its non-contentious instructions may have sky rocketed but Paola Ruggiero is taking it all in her stride. The Italian and EU trademark attorney watches over Carpenè Malvolti’s portfolio assiduously, confects strategies to optimise its asset protection and monitors their marks online too. A leading light on geographical indications, Giovanni Galimberti is Corsorzio del Prosecco’s preferred choice in the cross-border protection of its denomination of origin. He and Massimiliano Mostardini “are stellar litigators who leave peers in awe of their performance in court”. Ethimo, a leading furniture design company relies on Mostardini to oversee and protect its global portfolio of intangible assets too.

Founding partners Luca Trevisan and Gabriel Cuonzo are renowned on the market and have chalked up numerous wins in landmark cases. Tackling the technology and pharmaceutical sectors respectively, they have almost 80 years of experience between them.Superdry’s key contact Julia Holden stands out thanks to her joint qualification as an English solicitor and Italian attorney.

She is efficient, understands her client’s needs and most importantly always secures a win.” Puntieri and Holden recently devised a bespoke enforcement programme to actively protect the trademark rights of US multinational 3M.

Enrico Antonielli d’Oulx commands the respect of the market for his anti-counterfeiting prowess. Outside of enforcement, he also keeps portfolios in fine fettle. “Alessandra Romeo’s proactivity to progress negotiations and drive resolutions is most impressive.
