PCA’s professionals regularly provide their clients with the necessary technical-legal assistance in the field of Italian, EU and international designs.
The services offered include in particular the preparation, filing and prosecution of design applications, the filing of appeals against the registration of competitors’ designs and the defence of the client’s designs.
PCA’s professionals also assist and advise clients in disputes relating to validity and infringement, as well as in the development of an overall strategy for the protection of the client’s designs.
PCA’s professionals are qualified to act directly before the Italian Patent and Trademark Office (IPTO), the San Marino Patent and Trademark Office (SMPTO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
In addition to the specific consultancy on the set up and protection of intangible assets and to the traditional administrative management of the intellectual property portfolio, our firm offers a complete range of collateral services that are aimed at enhancing and exploiting these rights, to achieve a balance between better protection and management cost-effectiveness: we assist clients, who carry out transactions of intellectual property rights, by means of the appropriate administrative due diligence worldwide and the registrations resulting from the transfer of ownership; we offer opinions in advertising law and in relation to unfair competition for the misappropriation of other’s attributes; we support clients in obtaining economic benefits in the field of industrial property (regional and national tenders, vouchers, etc.).
