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. If you need to register your company logo or patent a product in Europe or internationally, do not hesitate to contact us for a free, no obligation quote. We will advise you on the best way to proceed in order to protect your innovative ideas at a reasonable cost. Our professionals are ready and able to provide value to your ideas by obtaining the appropriate IP protection for you. Since 1997 Jacobacci & Partners has featured top of the rankings for Italy drawn up by Managing Intellectual Property, an authoritative international magazine reviewing all leading IP consulting firms. In 2020, we were voted "Italian Firm of the Year" in the Patent Prosecution category, after ranking in the first tier in trademark and patent matters since 2007. In 2019 the Firm was a co-winner in the category 'Best IP Advisor in Italy' at the second edition of The Innovation & IP Forum and Awards, Leaders League’s initiative dedicated to challenges and opportunities in the field of patents, trademarks and Intellectual Property. In 2021, for the second year, the Leaders League rated Jacobacci "Best IP Agency for Trademark Prosecution", adding this year the nomination as "Best IP Agency for Patent Prosecution". Moreover, in 2021 the Financial TIMES, in partnership with Statista, rated Jacobacci among the “Europe’s Best Patent Law Firms” with bronze in the Mechanical Engineers sector and in the Biotechnology & Food one. Last but not least, the World Intellectual Property Organization recently confirmed Jacobacci & Partners as a major applicant for international PCT patents in Italy and for EPO patents in Europe.
