Specialists in intellectual property protection
For a company that wants to stand out, intellectual property is everything: it’s the recognisability of a distinctive mark, the individuality of a characteristic design, the unique alchemy of its know-how, the innovative potential of a patent, the ingeniousness of a software application. It’s the product of the intelligence, creativity and commitment of its people, a key asset of primary importance, the result of investments in resources, that must be defended from attempts by others to exploit it and all kinds of unfair competition.
Our task is to provide you with all the tools you need to identify and enforce your rights, and to protect the intellectual property of your business in Europe and worldwide.
For over a century we have been pulling out all the stops to sustain your projects
We were founded thanks to the intuition of a young engineer, Francesco Fumero, one of the
first in Italy to understand the need for a company that would help businesses to protect their ideas and investments.
In fact, he started the company back in 1912, when digital technology had still to be invented, cinema was in its early stages and the car was still a luxury that only a few could afford.
Since then the world has changed and our company has witnessed over a century of innovations, following at close hand the evolution of society and industry and helping to establish the profession of the consultant specialised in trademarks and patents in Italy.
Today we operate on a global scale, through a team of professionals with international experience, from our Italian offices in Milan, Ancona and Varese and our foreign branches in San Marino and Munich, Germany.
