For over a century Bird & Bird have played a key part in protecting some of the world's most ground-breaking inventions and high profile brands; we're confident we can offer you one of the most ambitious, energetic, dedicated groups of intellectual property professionals you're likely to meet.
We will provide you with a team, rich in real-world experience, comprising experts who have worked at the forefront of pioneering technologies. A substantial number of our lawyers hold qualifications in scientific or technical fields, meaning we are often called upon for our specialist knowledge and insight on large international mandates. We are respected for our creative and original solutions.
We offer both litigation and transactional support in relation to all IP rights, from small innovative projects to the largest, most complex and ground-breaking transactions and disputes.
Our approach has always been centred on client service, collaborating and innovating with our clients to create bespoke solutions that make their lives easier. This includes:- (i) the 'twobirds Pattern' product, a proprietary, in-house patent valuation and analysis tool, that allows us to landscape, analyse, and value patent portfolios in an automated and sophisticated way; and (ii) our innovative and dynamic Brand Protection reporting portal, which uses dynamic charts that give clients an up-to-date overview of their risk profile at any given time.
Talk to us to find out how our tools, experience and our genuine passion for IP can help you devise a strategy that will help to maintain your competitive edge, whilst protecting and optimising your IP in the best way possible.
Internationally Bird & Bird has over 350 IP lawyers, attorneys and legal professionals across our 30 offices, many of whom have known each other and worked together for years, meaning we're all on the same page and offer consistency and quality that runs through all levels of seniority. We are therefore ideally placed to devise and coordinate multi-jurisdictional litigation strategies and (in the future) to represent clients before the Unified Patent Court.

Founded in Turin in 1872, Jacobacci & Partners leads the way in the field of intellectual property.
Throughout three centuries we have gained the experience that has made us what we are today: the largest intellectual property firm in Italy, and one of the largest in Europe, specializing in the protection of patents and trademarks. Beginning over 150 years ago as a family-run studio, we are now a large pan-European firm currently having 90 professionals in 13 European cities in 3 countries: Turin, Milan, Rome, Brescia, Padua, Kilometro Rosso (Bergamo), Bologna, Madrid, Alicante, Paris, Lyon, Nantes and Bordeaux. We strive to provide you with the broadest possible protection of your IP rights – from the initial conception to defending and asserting your IP rights in Court.
Over the years we have managed over 100,000 patents and 100,000 trademarks for more than 10,000 clients of every size, sector and geographic area: an extraordinary history that allows us to state with confidence that we have experience with virtually every type of IP issue that may arise. With a focus on our own technological innovations, we provide our clients with, secure and independent, one-click connection to their patent and trademark portfolios. More than half of the top 100 global brands have entrusted us with the protection and enforcement of their IP portfolios. We do not limit ourselves, however, to large, multi-national companies.
