The Intellectual Property Department is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of lawyers, patent and trademark agents and patent experts, some of whom hail from renowned international institutions operating in the field. The professional team provides Local and foreign clients with integral advice on all matters relating to the legal protection and commercial exploitation of all types of intangible assets and, in particular, those subject to IP legislation: trademarks and other distinctive signs, patents and utility models, industrial designs, designations of origin and geographical indications, artistic, literary, scientific, audiovisual and technological creations, personal portrayal, personal and business reputation, information and know-how with business value, etc.

The Department focuses particularly on problems relating to the protection and exploitation of intangible assets in digital format and online, above all on social networks, given their major impact on today’s economy and society. It handles highly complex, large-scale contentious matters in relation to, e.g., digital piracy, e-books and the protection of business reputations on the Internet and on social networks in particular.
