Dr. Kfir Luzzatto is the President of the Luzzatto Group and his family’s fourth generation to work in intellectual property. His practice covers patents and trademark matters.

The Group that Kfir heads was founded by his great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869 and moved to Israel more than 50 years ago.

Kfir earned a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the Ben Gurion University of the Negev and continues his relationship with his alma mater as a guest lecturer in addition to speaking at other academic institutions on the subject of intellectual property and technology.

Kfir has dealt with many important cases, such as Prozac, Viagra, and other breakthrough pharmaceutical products, as well as with sophisticated high-tech subjects, including cyber protection, defense systems, etc.

Kfir has vast experience in drafting and prosecuting patent applications in different fields, but nowadays he mainly directs and participates in IP litigation, and oversees complex portfolios requiring sophisticated strategy planning. Kfir’s extensive experience in litigation allows him a unique perspective of the development of strong IP protection for start-ups and multinational companies alike.

Kfir is the recipient of the Landau Award for research and the author of many articles on intellectual property. Kfir’s Book, “The World of Patents,” was published in Hebrew by Globes Press in 2003. His international book, “Fun with Patents,” was released in early 2016. Kfir often serves as an examiner for the Israeli Patent and Trademark Office for applicants for a patent attorney license in Israel.
