Our country is signatory of all the main IP International Conventions & Treaties, which allow to obtain protection through different routes.

Since our professionals are registered representatives before various offices in the European region, we offer to our foreign clients a wide range of services in connection with filing and prosecuting applications both in Italy and San Marino and the whole area of European Convention, either through the Paris priority convention or through the PCT route (while a PCT application can be filed at the Italian PTO, the protection of a PCT application can get force in Italy only through a validation of a European Patent  - no direct PCT route available).

National applications in Italy, without priority Convention claim, can benefit of a Search Report issued by the EPO at no additional cost for the applicants.

We assist our clients also in the post-grant procedure, in particular for national validations of European patents, oppositions before the EPO, limitation before the EPO and judicial cancellation in Italy.
