With 70 years’ experience, we are a consultancy firm specialising in intellectual property (industrial property and copyright).

We started our activity in 1949 as a family company. Today we enjoy a solid reputation at both national and international level, always striving to build up a close relationship with our clients and delivering specialist legal advice, based on the principles of quality, excellence and attention to detail.

We believe that the protection of creations and inventions, innovative production processes that aim to revolutionise the market and achieve success, must be committed to in full and one of the primary concerns of the entrepreneur.
