Intellectual property

At LCA, we have long-standing expertise in the provision of contentious and non-contentious assistance on trademarks and domain names, designs and models, patents, know-how, unfair competition, copyright and misleading and comparative advertising.

If your company needs assistance in contentious matters, we can support you in any dispute relating to intellectual property rights (before the competent Italian, European and international administrative and judicial authorities, as well as the institutions managing alternative dispute resolution procedures), unfair competition, personal data protection, misleading and comparative advertising (before the ordinary courts, the Italian Competition Authority and the Italian Advertising Self-Regulation Jury).

We also negotiate and draft licensing and transfer agreements for trademarks, patents, know-how and intellectual property protected by copyright, technology transfer agreements, publishing and software agreements, advertising agreements, sponsorship and promotion. We handle the intellectual property law aspects of extraordinary transactions.

Thanks to our specialist team of lawyers and trademarks attorneys (with the Italian Patent and Trademark Office and the European Union Intellectual Property Office), we can support you in:

  • filing and prosecution (objections, oppositions, renewals, transcriptions) of trademarks, designs and models, in Italy and abroad
  • monitoring trademark registers to detect whether third parties have filed identical or similar trademarks
  • anti-counterfeiting on the Internet and monitoring B2C and B2B e-commerce platforms, especially those operating in China and the Far East
  • implementing a worldwide customs protection service
  • researching the best strategy for the protection and exploitation of intangible assets and management of complex trademark portfolios
