Intellectual Property

IP is the engine of the third millennium economy. Nitti & Associati follows the worldwide development of such subject in order to advise its clients in a fast changing environment. The firm activity is focused on patents, trade secrets, software, and trade mark licensing, and in representing clients in judicial proceedings and arbitrations involving IP issues.

Protection of trade secrets and know-how is a priority for many companies since it is the foundation of an efficient IP protection and development. We particularly care about assisting firms with innovative products and services who want to protect themselves from suppliers, clients and ex-employees.

Nitti & Associati has also developed significant knowledge in the Seventh Framework Program (FP7) and, especially, in the issues related to intellectual property rights. So our firm can assist private and public bodies in negotiating and stipulating consortium agreements and other contracts involving the use and the exploitation of the background and the foreground.

Particular expertise has been developed in Information Technology as Mr Nitti has been assisting software houses and Internet service and content providers in their business since the mid-nineties.
